Celtic winger James Forrest admits that he is not thinking too much about making his 200th appearance for the Scottish giants.

The 25-year-old winger made his 199th appearance for Celtic in the Old Firm derby last weekend, and is on the brink of playing a landmark game for the Bhoys this weekend.

An unused substitute against Barcelona last night, the midfielder could make his 200th appearance for Celtic against Inverness on Sunday, and Forrest indicated that it will be a special occasion when it eventually happens.

A product of the Celtic academy, the 25-year-old admits that his dream was always to make it big at Parkhead, and despite the up-and-down nature of his career, Forrest feels happy that he has won trophies and played in Europe at his boyhood club.

The winger told Celtic View: “I’m absolutely buzzing. I have always wanted to stay here coming through the youth ranks.  


“I’m delighted about it and I want to make as many appearances as I can and keep going.

"There have been a lot of ups, such as the all the leagues and cups we have won, and going into the Champions League three times now, while my debut is up there, too.

"So there have been loads of good moments and hopefully there will be more to come.

“I will just take it game by game and play as much as I can. I don’t think too much about it but when someone does mention it to you, it’s good to hear.”

Forrest is also a Scotland international, and has 14 caps beside his name for his national team.
