Celtic winger James Forrest has entertained both Celtic and Scotland fans with his unique choice of luggage, arriving at the team’s five-star hotel base in Glasgow with a black bin bag full of his belongings. The Scotland National team’s official account shared images of the players arriving to meet Scotland’s manager, showcasing an array of expensive bags and holders. However, true to his down-to-earth nature, Forrest opted for a more humble approach.

One fan joked online that Forrest looked as though he’d been thrown out of the house by his partner. This light-hearted moment has endeared Forrest even more to fans.

Forrest’s inclusion in the Scotland squad for the Euros came as a pleasant surprise to many. His resurgence in form during the latter part of the season played a significant role in helping Celtic secure a remarkable League and Cup double. This late-season renaissance did not go unnoticed, earning him a spot in the national squad for Euro 2024 in Germany.

Back in March, few would have predicted Forrest’s return to the national team setup. His performances have been instrumental. The winger’s hard work and perseverance have paid off.

With the tournament just around the corner, Scotland are set to kick off their campaign in two weeks against the hosts, Germany. Forrest’s inclusion brings experience and a touch of unpredictability to the squad, qualities that could prove invaluable on the big stage. We hope he has a suitcase for the flight!
