Rodgers praises James Forrest after double delight at Dens Park

Brendan Rodgers praised Celtic match-winner and Man of the Match James Forrest after the veteran Celtic winger repaid his manager’s faith in giving him a starting place against Dundee.

An Adam Idah own goal

A brilliant finish in each half looked to have secured the three points until an Adam Idah own goal gave the home side hope and Celtic on edge until the five minutes of time added on was over.

So two 2-1 away wins for the two title chasers and the only difference is that we are now down to four game left with Celtic having THREE at Celtic Park and one away while theRangers have two games at Ibrox and two away from home.

“James Forrest is one of the fathers of the great success this club has had over the last decade or so,” Brendan Rodgers

Here’s Brendan speaking to Sky Sports today after Celtic defeated Dundee 2-1 at Dens Park.

Brendan Rodgers said: “He’s just a brilliant player. I said to the guys afterwards, he’s one of the remaining fathers of the success that this club has had over the last decade or so in particular.

“There’s very few of them but he is definitely one of them that has created this mentality and symbol of quality over this past decade that this club has had.

“His first finish is sublime really, what technique, and his second one he makes it look easier than it is.

“He may not quite have the legs he had a number of years back but he certainly has the quality, that doesn’t diminish. He was our match-winner and I’m so happy for him.”
