Celtic's Forster not getting carried away with England talk

Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster insists he is not listening to talk regarding his potential England call-up.

The former Newcastle United shot-stopper was watched by England goalkeeping coach Ray Clemence as he kept a clean sheet in the Hoops' Champions League group stage opener against Benfica on Wednesday.

Forster's manager Neil Lennon and a few other people involved with the club suggest the 24-year old should soon force his way into the Three Lions setup but he has made it clear that he is just letting his club performances to do the talking.

"I didn't know he [Clemence] was here beforehand but I've just got to do my best for Celtic," said Forster.

"It's nice that he came up to watch, the Champions League is a great level but I've just got to do my best.

"As long as I keep improving I'll be knocking at the door and if anyone picks me that's great but we'll wait and see."
