That is the view of ex-Hoops and Scotland shotstopper Rab Douglas today as he hit out at Roy Hodgson's call to back cock-up keeper Joe Hart as the Three Lions' No.1.
Forster - rumoured to be considered by Spanish cracks Barcelona as a replacement for Victor Valdes - was named in England's squad for the double header against Montenegro and Poland just days after his heroics in the Champions League against the La Liga side.
His form is in stark contrast to that of fellow countryman Hart, who looked suspect in Man City's 3-1 loss to Bayern Muninch on Wednesday.
And Douglas reckons an unfair view of the Scottish game is the only reason to keep Forster waiting in the wings.
He said: "It is taking the easy option to say that. Fraser has proven himself time and time again now for Celtic in the league as well as in the Champions League.
"Last season he was outstanding at times and on Tuesday night his
double save from Neymar and then Alexis Sanchez was as good as anything you will see at the top level in football.
"His agility, his strength, his technique, his confidence - he is
performing consistently at the top level.
"And the intensity of playing for Celtic where you are under the microscope in every game should set him up well for the pressures that will come with England.
"I played with Chris Sutton and Alan Thompson in my time at Celtic and they too were overlooked because I imagine we are viewed as a
"It is a pity but for Fraser I do think it is different.
"He is young enough to have a lot of time on his side and if he keeps doing it in the Champions League then his time will definitely come."
While City shotstopper Hart has been on the end of some fierce criticism south of the border, ex-Parkhead keeper Douglas had some sympathy for his fellow stopper.
And he believes
Forster would have been prepared for the news that he was in the squad for the English double header without being lined up to play.
"I think the English media can be pretty
intense when it comes to giving it in the neck to players who are not doing it for the national side," said Douglas.
"I have been there and as a goalkeeper no-one else can really appreciate what that feels like.
"It is a very isolated
position on the pitch and I've felt for Hart this week because he is an excellent goalkeeper.
"He has been slaughtered and I won't be the only guy who knows what he is going through - Fraser will have a lot of sympathy for him as well.
"Goalkeepers alone know how devastating an experience that can be.
"I also think that Fraser will know that if he maintains this form that it is a matter of time before he gets his chance. It will come."
