FRASER FORSTER may be a giant in goals for Celtic, but he is something of a shrinking violet when it comes to blowing his own trumpet.

So, when he says that his penalty save in Copenhagen last night could be a big moment in the tie, it tells you how significant a stop it might be.

Coming just a little over 10 minutes from time in a game which Celtic dominated or large spells, it could make all the difference come Thursday night at Celtic Park.

“It could be a big save," Forster said. "It’s always nice to contribute and makes saves. Luckily I guess right and it stayed out. It’s all set up for next week now.

“I knew I got a good touch on it but I was waiting to see where it went. Thankfully the lads cleared it.

“I was just going on a gut feeling and it worked out well. I’ll take it.

“Every penalty taker is different so you can only do so much to practise. I just wait and see and then hope to go the right well.

“I don’t really keep tabs on how many I’ve saved. Sometimes you go through spells when you seem to save a few, but there are times when you don’t as well.

“It’s just nice at the minute I seem to be making a few saves but it’s just good to contribute to the team.

“It was a strange game. We created a few good chances and on another day could have scored two or three in the first half.

“The second half was a completely different game. They came out stronger and we never got going again, so ended up defending for most of the half.

“We walked off a little disappointed but it was still a good result away from home. The away goal is obviously massive."

Forster has savoured the big-game Europa League experience since his return to Celtic, and he is determined that the match in the Telia Parken won't be his last big away fixture of the season on the continent.

“These big European nights are a fantastic part of being at Celtic," he said. "Not many players actually get to play in European games so it’s nice to be involved in them.

“We’ve done well to progress from the group – now we want to go as far as we can."
