Anthony Stokes has heaped praise on his fellow teammate James Forrest and has tipped the midfielder to recapture the form that helped him break into the Celtic team in the first place.

When asked about the Scots potential, the Irishman was very complementary hailing James as one of the most exciting players at the club.

“He’s a top class player” said the Celtic Striker.
“He has been hampered throughout the last few years because of injuries but when he is fit and at it he is exciting to watch and to play with.

“He has that kind of pace that he could play in any league in the world – and I mean that.

“When you have that pace married with the technical ability that he has then he just needs to concentrate on staying fit. He is a guy who could go as high as he likes in the game.”


James has found it very hard going the past two seasons to get a run of games without succumbing to injury. He has shown signs in the last couple of games that he might be ready to unshackle himself and get back to playing the way we know he is capable of.
