Celtic goalie Fraser Forster has said he will see out this season at Parkhead – but concedes his long-term future is to be decided.

Reports in the summer suggested that Forster’s parent club Southampton had inserted a recall clause to the loan deal.

But the 31-year-old reassured the Celtic faithful that he will be going nowhere in January.

The goalie said: “I don’t think there’s a recall (option), so I think I’m here for the season from my side of things.

“I’m happy here and glad to be back here playing. I just want to do as well as I can so I think I’ll be here for the season.

“It’s brilliant. When I had the opportunity to come back up I was glad that it was going to be for the season.

“I wanted to be back here and I wanted to be playing.

“I had a very hard 18 months before going back up where I wasn’t playing for Southampton when I’d so used to playing. I think I played pretty much every game before then apart from when I was out injured.

“I’ve had a good start to the season so I’m absolutely buzzing to be up here and making the most of it.”

The Celtic supporters would love to see him back at the club, but Forster says the decision is out of his hands.

He said: “I’m only focusing on the short term really. So much of what will happen will be out of my hands.

“I’m just concentrating week by week, enjoying it while I can. The rest will take care of itself.”
