James Forrest is having the best season of his career, and he maintained his excellent form when he finally ended his goal drought against Rangers, scoring for the Hoops in their 5-0 win over Rangers.

The 26-year-old is in the best form of his career, and has been deservedly nominated as Scotland’s player of the year, but he hadn’t managed to put up a good performance against Rangers in his Hoops career.

All that changed however, when he scored his first ever goal for the Bhoys against the Ibrox side as the Hoops went 3-0 up.

He beat two men on a mazy run, then curled a shot into the bottom corner of the net, and proceeded to celebrate in style.

The goal was Forrest’s 18th goal of the season, and he is the Hoops joint top scorer alongside Scott Sinclair.

In recent weeks Forrest has fallen out of form, which is in a way understandable as he was in such brilliant form for most of the season.

This lead to criticism from a selection of the Hoops support, who wanted Patrick Roberts to replace Forrest in the first-team.

But Forrest answered his critics in style with his goal in the Old Firm derby, and there is no doubt that he will be a key player for the Hoops going forward as they aim to clinch the domestic treble for the second year in a row.
