Celtic manager Neil Lennon says he is expecting a "huge" bid for his goalkeeper Fraser Forster - and admits he is powerless to keep him if the right club comes in, according to Sky Sports.

Forster has shown outstanding form in his last two seasons in the Champions League, contributing majorly to the Bhoys' brilliant run to the last 16 of the competition last season, where they were eliminated by Juventus. 

His performances have earnt him an England call-up, meaning he is the only man to be selected by Roy Hodgson from the Scottish divisions.

Speaking to PLZ Soccer's radio show, Lennon said: "It's going to be impossible to keep Fraser the way he's playing. Inevitably, I think a huge club will come in and make a huge bid for him."

The Hoops boss also expressed his frustration at the situation his side find themselves in with regards to player sales, with Victor Wanyama and Gary Hooper both leaving for the riches of the Premier League over the summer.

"Sometimes it is very frustrating as a manager, as you are trying to build something, you are trying to progress the club but it is a huge compliment about what we have done over the past two or three years and it has really put the club on the map again", he continued.

"People might say I am biased but over the last two seasons in the Champions League he has proved at the highest level that he's a fantastic goalkeeper and he's still only 24.

"For a keeper who is still so young. He's got so much more to come."

Celtic's 2-1 home win over Ajax on Tuesday has kept their chances of reaching the knockout stages of the Champions League for the second year row in alive, with a trip to Amsterdam their next assignment in the competition.
