KING OF THE SHUT-OUTS; Forster hails coach Woods for his clean-sheet record.
FRASER FORSTER has paid tribute to goalkeeping coach Stevie Woods for helping Celtic claim a new SPL clean sheet record.
Neil Lennon's men recorded 25 shut-outs on the way to clinching their first title since 2008.
Sunday's clean sheet against Hearts ensured their defensive record at home this term was the club's best for 90 years.
In season 1921-22, Celtic conceded just four times at home under Willie Maley while this term Celtic were breached only six times at Parkhead in 19 matches.
Forster, responsible for 21 of Celtic's shut-outs with back-up keeper Lukasz Zaluska in for the other four games, said: "I'm delighted with our clean sheet record. It is what we work on with Woodsy all week.
"We did well last year but we managed to beat that.
"The coaching staff have been brilliant since the first day I came in. Woodsy has been absolutely fantastic and I couldn't really ask any more of him or the gaffer.
"We identified aspects of my game I needed to work on and we've done that."
Forster's loan deal expires at the end of the month with the 24-year-old heading back to Newcastle. Celtic are keen to secure him on a permanent deal and while they have agreed a fee with the Premiership outfit, the keeper has yet to make a definitive decision on his future.
? Celtic flop Efrain Juarez has been voted one of the worst signings of the season in Spain.
The Mexico international, a pounds 4million Hoops buy from UNAM Pumas in 2010, joined Real Zaragoza on a season-long loan last year.
But the La Liga club sent the midfielder back to Parkhead in January after just 15 appearances.
The 24-year-old has now been ranked seventh in a poll to find the country's most disappointing player.
? Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink last night announced his retirement and named an Old Firm goal as his career favourite.
The Dutch striker, who has decided to hang up his boots at the age of 33, said: "My favourite memory and goal would be the one I scored for Celtic in 2008 with a header in the last minute against Rangers.
"It wasn't the prettiest of goals but because of that we went on to win the league that season."
