Scott Brown salutes 'unplayable' team-mate after Celtic win v Partick
Scott Brown joined the chorus of praise for James Forrest, after the in-form Celtic winger scored his first hat-trick for the Hoops in their 3-2 Scottish Cup win over Partick Thistle.
Forrest now has 16 goals for the season, the best total of his career, and is now only one goal behind Scott Sinclair in the race to be the Bhoys’ top scorer.
Brown was so impressed by his Scotland international team-mates’ performance that he took to his personal Instagram account to rave about the 26-year-old.
“This guy this season unplayable. Great win and into the nxt round” he said, prior to the draw for the Scottish Cup quarter-final being made.
Forrest and Brown have been two of the Hoops’ best performers this season, as Brendan Rodgers’ side have found it difficult to live up to the standards set last season, when clinched a first domestic treble in 16 years and an unbeaten league campaign.
The Hoops are next in action on Thursday, when they take on Zenit in the first round of their last 32 Europa League tie.
If the Bhoys want to take a positive result over to Russia, then they will need Forrest, Brown and the under-performing likes of Moussa Dembele to be firing on all cylinders in what looks to be a difficult match against Roberto Mancini’s side.
