It is now time to draft former Newcastle United goalkeeper into the action with England less than eight months away from the World Cup in Brazil.
Forster has been superb for Celtic in the Champions League this season, and although the Scottish League isn't exactly the sort of place we want him to earn his bread and butter (on par with Northern League Div 4), his performances against Europe's best have been mind-blowing.
Manchester City's Hart and Matija Nastasic were involved in a mix-up which gifted Fernando Torres a 90th-minute winner. Leaving every TV pundit to point the finger of blame at England's No 1.
Following the loss, Pellegrini refused to discuss the errors which resulted in Torres' winner or whether Hart's place is under threat from Costel Pantilimon.
"I do it privately with the players," Pellegrini said.
