Celtic youngster Fasan: It's fantastic working with England international Forster

Young Celtic goalkeeper Leo Fasan says it is a major thrill to work day in, day out with players such as Fraser Forster.

The 19-year old Italian, currently third-choice at Parkhead behind Forster and Lukasz Zaluska, admits he is learning every day from the more senior Hoops glovemen, particularly the former who recently made his international debut with England.

"It's always different for goalkeepers, so usually they come into the first team a little bit later than other players. I feel like I am making progress in the right direction and I always try my best in training and games to try and step up to the next level," Fasan told the club's official website.

"It is fantastic working with Fraser. He's a great player who is great to train with. I try and take it all in, both what he's doing on the training pitch and in games.

"I found it quite surprising just how long it took him to get his first England cap, looking at this year and last year, he performed really well in the Champions League against Barcelona and other top teams.

"But now that he has made his debut, hopefully he can get many more starts for his country."
