James Forrest will be given to the very last minute to make it for Sunday John Kennedy has confirmed but is it mind games?
We’ve seen it a few times this season when players haven’t been available, nobody at the club completely rules them out.
It’s good to keep your opponents guessing.
James limped off during the 6-0 win against Livingston last Saturday and the fans have been waiting for a positive update.
We’ve not exactly got that to date and we’ll have to wait until the squad is announced on Sunday.
Celtic interim boss John Kennedy says they’ll make a late call on James Forrest for Sunday’s Scottish Cup tie v Rangers.

Celtic have a much better chance with James in the side. It lets us play a more natural formation and bring Moi Elyounoussi into play.
As mentioned by Alison Conroy, John also confirmed Klimala’s move to the MLS is almost complete and he won’t be in the squad for Sunday.
Hopefully whoever does make the starting XI is up for it.
