Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster can become one of the very best in the world according to Italian legend Gigi Buffon.

“If Forster keeps on playing like he is there is no reason he can’t be close” – Gigi Buffon

The 34-year-old former World Cup winner has regularly followed the progress of the big Englishman and certainly long before the Scottish champions were recently paired with his Juventus side in the last sixteen of the Champions League.

“Of course I know about Fraser,” Buffon admitted to the Daily Record. “I watch all the top young goalkeepers in the world and I’m sure he can become one of them.

“The top three young goalkeepers in the world for me are Hart, Neuer and Sirigu,” he continued. “It will be one of those three who will go on to be the best in the world. But if Forster keeps on playing like he is there is no reason he can’t be close to or even in that group.”
