Forster has impressed ever since making the move from Newcastle United in 2010 and has particularly caught the eye in the club’s Champions League performances over the previous two seasons.

He has even fought his way into the England national team, and now his manager believes that there will be renewed interest in his services once again in the summer.

“We received no bids for Fraser in the January window,” the Celtic boss is quoted as saying in the Sunday Mail.

“I think there will be something in the summer for him but he seems happy here and content.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if something happens in the summer or we get offers then.”

Lennon then went onto compare the player to Artur Boruc, who enjoyed five successful years between the sticks at Parkhead.

“We’ve been lucky over the years to have two superb keepers in Artur Boruc and Fraser,” he added.

“We waited a long time for a world-class goalie then got one with Artur. You think it might be another long wait then Fraser comes along and progresses into a world-level goalkeeper.

“He has done amazing things here. Getting into the England squad and winning a cap while in Scotland speaks volumes for him.

“Everyone will have their own thoughts but I don’t think there’s too much between Artur at his peak and Fraser at his peak.”
