'I just want to stay here' - Celtic attacker makes revelation about Parkhead future
Celtic attacker James Forrest has revealed that he wants to stay at Parkhead as long as possible but has admitted he does not want to let complacency creep into his game.
The 26-year-old is halfway through the best season of his career and wants to have a few more seasons with the Parkhead club.
“I just want to stay here as long as possible”, he said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“In football you never know and Celtic are always looking to better the team. You need to be at it the whole time and if not they will sign new players and you can be easily replaced.
“I’ve only known Celtic and I’d love to stay here as long as I can. If you get complacent then it’s dangerous.
“I just want to keep working hard and doing well. I want to keep winning trophies with Celtic.”
Since breaking into the Hoops first-team in 2010 under the management of Neil Lennon, Forrest has had his ups and downs at Celtic, with injuries and loss of form at times but he has still managed to win 12 trophies whilst playing for the Hoops.
This season so far has seen some of the best performances of his career, and at the halfway point of the season he has scored 12 goals, which his best ever total in a season, beating his previous best of nine goals.
He has the left-wing position his own, keeping the on-loan Manchester City man an start of last season Patrick Roberts out of the first-team and playing far more consistently than Scott Sinclair and has to be one of the favourites to be named player of the year.
Forrest will be looking to add to his goal tally when the Hoops return to action after their winter break, with a Scottish Cup tie at home to Brechin City on Saturday.
