Celtic's 2-1 Champions League victory against Barcelona at Parkhead was owed heavily to the brilliance of goalkeeper Fraser Forster, and the Spanish press have paid their own tribute to 'the great wall'.

Forster repelled the Catalans 14 times as they peppered his goal with 25 shots throughout the 90 minutes. The former Newcastle United goalkeeper was only breached by Lionel Messi in stoppage-time.
