James Forrest: This is what my Celtic improvement comes down to
Celtic winger James Forrest has insisted that he wants to improve his game despite being halfway through the best season of his career.
The 26-year-old is undeniably one of the front runners to be named Scotland’s player of the year after scoring 13 goals so far in what has been a remarkably consistent season.
The player had never reached double figures in goals before the season began and this year he is well on his way to scoring 20 goals, which is testament to the former he has shown in the first-half of the season.
But as the games come thick and fast for the Hoops the Scotland international isn’t content to rest on his laurels, and wants to keep going as the Bhoys aim for back-to-back domestic trebles.
“To be scoring so often is good but I don’t want to stop now. I want to kick on and keep working hard and hopefully I can see the rewards at the end of the season” he said, as quoted by the Evening Times.
“I do think that I have improved but it comes down to working hard and trying to be as consistent as possible.
“It is nice to be able to see that on the pitch. I am delighted with the goals because it really was something that I wanted to add to my game.”
Forrest scored Celtic’s opening goal in their first match after the winter break, the 5-0 Scottish Cup victory over Brechin City. The Bhoys were comfortable throughout the game, with the other goals scored by Sinclair, Ntcham, Boyata and Edouard.
The Hoops are back in action on Tuesday as they restart their league campaign against Partick Thistle at Firhill, as they look to maintain their eight point lead over Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
