Forster: Bhoys form no worry

FRASER FOSTER is taking no notice of Celtic's poor pre-season form ahead of next Wednesday's crunch Champions League qualifier against HJK Helsinki at Parkhead.

The Hoops have been unimpressive in their warm-up games, winning only one of five fixtures and scoring twice, although Tuesday's 1-0 defeat by Norwich at Parkhead was an improvement on Saturday's 4-0 thrashing by Ajax in Amsterdam.

Asked how much he read into recent results, goalkeeper Forster said: "Nothing at all, results are meaningless in pre-season.

"It is just about getting fitness and sharpness.

"The Norwich game was a step up from how we performed when we were away and that was a positive so it is just important that we take that into Saturday's game."
