As a prime example of hard work paying off, James Forrest’s recent return to form has been a special to watch. Scoring goals at crucial moments for Celtic, whether it be in the cup semi-final or the league, his return to form certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed by the Scottish camp.

A massive bonus

Speaking to Celtic TV, Forrest revealed that his focus has primarily been on winning the league and getting to the cup final, and getting into the Scotland squad wasn’t solely on his mind, but it comes as a huge bonus. Speaking to Celtic TV, Forrest said…

“It’s a massive bonus and really good after the last couple of months.

“It’s a great end to the season and a great experience to go away with the national team to the Euros.

“Just after training I came into the changing room and the squad had been announced, so it was good and obviously there’s a few other boys from Celtic going as well.

“I know most of the boys in the squad, even though it’s a few years since I’ve been in the squad. I still know most of the staff and the players as well and I’m really looking forward to it.”

Reap the rewards

“Outside, people were talking and maybe asking me questions, but I’ve honestly just loved the last couple of months, contributing and helping for Celtic. I’ve been really enjoying my football, and winning the league and getting to the cup final, that’s just what I’ve been focusing on every day.’

“Then you reap the rewards with the national team coming in as well.”
