Forrest aiming for more after reaching goal milestone

James Forrest is aiming to score a few more this season after netting against Ross County - making 2023-24 the 15th consecutive season he has scored in.

The winger, now 32, scored on his Hoops debut in 2010 against Motherwell and has now scored under Neil Lennon, Ronny Deila, Brendan Rodgers and Ange Postecoglou.

“It’s amazing to reach another milestone," he said. "I think you appreciate these things even more when you get older. Still playing here and trying to contributing is what I have got to keep doing.

“I’d like to keep it going. It’s hard to look too far in advance when the club has such a strong squad and is always signing good players every season.

“I still really enjoy it and getting milestones like this make it all worthwhile. Hopefully there’s more to come.”

Forrest has had to make do with more of a bit-part role in recent seasons, but remains contracted until 2025.

“Obviously I’m getting older but the manager came in and I had a good pre-season. I want to contribute when I get the chance. A few of the other lads have come in recently and taken their chances when the manager’s rotated it, so that’s good.”
