It has to be said that James Forrest must be absolutely dynamite in training as he’s now on the third manager who has put their faith in him at the start of their tenure.
Last night, the winger did his job well and looked active down that left-hand side whenever he got the chance.
The one thing with Forrest though, for every good game we get from him we usually get five bad ones from him. Through injury, complacency or just a lack of consistency the player has went down in many fans estimations with an overall majority thinking he should move on.
He is yet to sign a contract extension with the club but on last nights team and performance does Brendan hold stock in Forrest’s ability and will he get the best out of him going forward?
Many will remain sceptical of this until he can churn out good performances on a consistent basis but was last night a start in doing so? Or will the winger revert back into his shell when things aren’t going Celtic’s way?
It’s easy to look good when you’re in control of a game and enjoy the lion’s share of possession but is he someone who can grab the game by the scruff of the neck and make something happen when all looks lost. I believe Paddy Roberts is that player, with increased competition, it is now up to James to throw one last roll of the dice to prove he’s worthy of the starting spot Rodgers sees him in.
