Loan Watch: Just Champion, Fraser

Fraser Forster is a Scottish Premier League champion while Nile Ranger also had reason to smile this weekend

By Dan King - Newcastle United Club Reporter

Fraser Forster marked clinching the Scottish Premier League title with Celtic in typical style - with another clean sheet.

The on-loan goalkeeper kept out Kilmarnock at Rugby Park to ensure that the Hoops will lift the trophy following an emphatic 6-0 win.

Charlie Mulgrew and Gary Hooper scored twice, with Glenn Loovens and Joe Ledley also on target, meaning Rangers' 3-1 win over St. Mirren was not enough to keep the title race alive.

Meanwhile in League One, Nile Ranger scored his first goal for Sheffield Wednesday in their 2-0 win at promotion rivals Huddersfield.

The Owls were already leading thanks to Miguel Llera's strike before Ranger wrapped it up with a confident finish after 72 minutes.

He played the full 90 minutes while in the same division, Alan Smith played 76 minutes for MK Dons as they drew 1-1 with Preston. Darren Potter's goal looked like it would be enough for the Dons but Bailey Wright equalised in the last minute.

In the Blue Square Bet Premier, Paul Dummett helped Gateshead to a 2-0 home win over Barrow. The defender played the full 90 minutes at centre-back to make it three clean sheets in five appearances for the Heed.

And the Welsh under-21 international also came close to a first senior goal on three occasions.
