Forster encouraged by Buffon words as Celtic prepare for Juventus

Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster is looking to prove Gianluigi Buffon correct after the Italian lavished praise on him.

The Juventus custodian recently complimented Forster on his form in the Champions League group stage and the Englishman is looking to back that up with similar showings in the Round of 16 fixtures against the Turin outfit.

"To have someone like him making comments about you is encouraging," he said.

"He's been one of the world's top keepers for so long, it will be great to play against him.

"He's won everything, World Cups, the works. He's been a fantastic keeper. He even pulls off wearing a hair clip!

"He's not even that old, but it seems like he's been around forever. He has been a great servant to Juventus and was someone I watched a lot when I was growing up."
