Celtic dropped out of the Champions League last night in what can only be described as an act of self-harm by a team who should have seen off Cluj on the night.

Individual errors and a baffling team selection both contributed to the downfall of the team. The clubbing blow for Celtic was Cluj’s third goal where first team star Scott Bain didn’t cover himself in glory.

With Craig Gordon breathing down the goalkeeper’s neck and Neil Lennon not afraid to drop Bain – it could be interesting on Saturday when Celtic take on Dunfermline.

However, former Celtic player Charlie Nicholas believes Neil Lennon should now be doing everything in his power to bring back the man who helped him so much the first time as Celtic manager – Fraser Forster.

The former Celtic goalkeeper has been spinning his wheel at Southampton for two years on a big contract and must want to get back playing.

Nicholas told SunSport, it’s something the club should be trying to make happen.

“Neil Lennon needs to make a goalkeeper his number one signing priority.

“If I were the Celtic manager, I would be doing all I could to get Fraser Forster back to the club.

“We saw further evidence of the need for the goalkeeping position to be urgently addressed at Motherwell.

“Scott Bain is the first-choice after he was preferred by Brendan Rodgers because he could handle the back-pass better than Craig Gordon.

“Lennon, however, has made it clear that he is more interested in his goalies keeping the ball out of the net.

“Bain has been badly exposed already this season and, with Craig Gordon running down his contract, he is not the answer.”

Wages would obviously be an issue now.
