Celtic winger James Forrest has been in flying form for Brendan Rodgers' side this season.

Celtic winger James Forrest has told the Telegraph that he cannot imagine leaving Glasgow and playing for another club.

Forrest has been in sparkling form at Celtic this season, with the attacker impressing all observers.

Forrest has always had potential since breaking through as a youngster, but he has not always had the consistency to go with it.

However, Brendan Rodgers appears to be getting the very best out of the 26-year-old this term.

Forrest scored twice for Celtic during their comprehensive victory over Motherwell yesterday.

The wide-man now has 10 goals and two assists over the campaign so far, and his form is sure to be catching the eye.

However, Forrest insists that he sees his future at Celtic, as he could never imagine representing another club.

“It’s hard to imagine myself playing for any other club," Forrest said. "I've been here since I was nine years old so anywhere but Celtic would feel strange.”

Forrest is likely to have a key role to play at Celtic over the coming weeks, with Patrick Roberts out injured.

The pair have been competing with each other for a place in Rodgers’ starting line-up, but with the Manchester City loanee injured, Forrest is surely set for more game time over the next few months.
