The 24-year-old has been speaking to reporters ahead of Celtic's clash with Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
Indeed, Forrest was not a first-team regular with the Bhoys last season but is happy that he and his team-mates will all get plenty of opportunities considering the amount of games the Scottish champions currently face as part of a packed schedule.

JF: There is competition for places but everyone wants to play.— Celtic Football Club (@celticfc) August 14, 2015
Meanwhile, the 24-year-old is also pleased with his form over the last six or seven months and is keen to maintain it.
Forrest has simply been eager for the chance to impress both in games and during training and, as he has stated, the Celtic boss has given him plenty in recent times.

The Hoops face Inverness Caledonian Thistle in their next Scottish Premiership clash on Saturday afternoon.
Celtic have enjoyed success against Inverness recently but the memory of their controversial Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Calley last term - that ended their Scottish treble dreams - will no doubt still be fresh, pushing Deila's side to bounce back from another disappointment following the 2-2 draw at Kilmarnock earlier this week.
