Ideas on fixing a bathroom shower screen

Hi, I need to fit a showerscreen in the normal place for a bath. The wall i would need to screw the screen to is a simple stud wall covered with plasterboard and then tiles. Problem is directly behind the plasterboard where i would need to screw into is the soil pipe. It's literally butted up against the back of the plasterboard so can't really use any of the normal fixings. One suggestion was to use a product called 'Sticks like Sh*t' - a kind of No Nails for the trade. Does anyone have any thoughts on whether 'glueing' the screen would be sufficient or have any other ideas on how the screen could be fixed. The screen will be a simple glass one (no folding mechanism) and would simply run along the edge of the bath. I have no need for it to swing open/shut. It would remain in the same position all the time. Any help greatfully appreciated

Just an idea..Can you fit say a plank of wood/ply about 10mm thick about 75mm wide (the length of the shower screens height) but fix it so the soil pipe is to one side of this piece of wood. You could screw & glue this then fit your screen to this wood. This would be secure.
I'd use that 'Sticks like Sh*t' to stick a piece of 2x1ins timber to the wall right up to the ceiling and find something to attach it to in/on the ceiling, {has to be something up there even if it means going into the roof space!!} and then screw the showerscreen to that. ''jobs a good en!''
