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."

Celtic 4 Aberdeen 1

Celtic surged to the top of the Scottish Premiership with a 4-1 victory against Aberdeen at Celtic Park.

Leigh Griffiths' early opener was soon cancelled out by Adam Rooney, but James Forrest restored the home advantage ahead of the break.

However, the champions were forced to wait until the closing stages when Scott Sinclair converted an 87th minute penalty after Mark Reynolds was sent-off.

Midfielder Tom Rogic then curled a delightful free-kick in the final minute.
