FORSTER MAKES RECORDS
Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster has said that he is extremely thankful to the help from coach Stevie Woods after claiming the SPL record for the most number of clean sheets in one single season. It has been a record-breaking season for Celtic in many ways.
The goalkeeping record is one of them. Fraser Forster has become part of the record books in the Scottish Premier league after surpassing the 25 sheets set by Celtic in 2008 this season. Fraser Forster also ensured that the clean sheet against Hearts on the final day of the season would make the defensive record this season as one of the best in 90 years.
Even though many claim that Celtic have won the title mainly because Rangers were denied the opportunity to have their 10 points on the board, while they have also been struggling off the pitch as well. However, there can be no doubts regarding the quality of football Celtic have played over the season, which includes the goalkeeping department as well.
Fraser has been responsible for 21 out of the 25 clean sheets for Celtic this season, while the remaining four was achieved by reserve goalkeeper Lukasz Zaluska. Following the award, Fraser Forster said that he is extremely thankful to the help from coach Stevie Woods.
“I’m delighted with our clean sheet record. It is what we work on with Woodsy all week. We did well last year but we managed to beat that. The coaching staff have been brilliant since the first day I came in. Woodsy has been absolutely fantastic and I couldn’t really ask any more of him or the gaffer. We identified aspects of my game I needed to work on and we’ve done that,” Fraser Forster said after achieving the record that made him the most successful goalkeeper in SPL.
