Adrian Durham has baffled a number of Celtic and general football fans with his suggestion that the Hoops ‘cheated’ after Fraser Forster performed heroics to help them win the League Cup on Sunday.
Speaking on talkSPORT, Durham framed his argument by suggesting that Southampton had won the League Cup for Celtic given how they’re paying the majority of his wages.
He went on to suggest the Hoops were essentially ‘cheating’ by relying on someone they cannot fully afford to help them to success, and his baffling argument has confused a number of fans.

READ CELTIC VERDICT
To suggest it was cheating for Celtic to benefit from having a loan player help them win a trophy really is baffling.
The whole point behind the move was for Forster to resurrect his career after falling down the pecking order at Southampton, for Celtic to strengthen their options in goal and for the move to benefit all parties involved; which it has.
As one of the Tweet’s eludes too, Durham’s comments certainly suggest that he is just using his platform to make a bizarre claim with the sole purpose of being controversial.
