Juventus star Buffon has advice for Celtic's Forster - Just switch off and play

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon suggests Fraser Forster simply needs to switch his mind off the occasion and do what he does best for Celtic this week.

The Old Lady meet Forster and his Hoops teammates in the Champions League Round of 16 first leg at Parkhead on Tuesday and Buffon says this and the return leg could be the making or breaking of the English gloveman.

"It will be two big games for Forster - we can see he has class and talent - but the Champions League knockout stages are where your nerves are tested," he said.

"When you are nervous then you are more likely to make a mistake as a goalkeeper. That is where the best thing to learn is to switch off and just play their game."
