Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster insists his new Scottish league record for maintaining a clean-sheet is a total team-effort.

"Massive credit to everyone, everyone's played a part" - Fraser Forster
The 25-year-old English international achieved a thirteenth consecutive shut-out as the visitors progressed to a 2-0 victory at Hearts.

It means that Forster has not been beaten in 1,215 minutes of league football, surpassing the previous best by Aberdeen's Bobby Clark's 43 years ago.

"We defend as a team and attack as a team as well," Forster told BBC Scotland. "The clean sheet's a real bonus and I'm delighted to have kept it. Massive credit to everyone, everyone's played a part."

"What a record and he's a fantastic goalkeeper," manager Neil Lennon added. "I'm sure he was a bit nervous going into the game. I'm sure he'll be the first to agree that the lads in front of him have done fantastically well as well."
