Chris Sutton reacts on Twitter to Scotland's James Forrest snub

James Forrest of Celtic controls the ball during the Scottish Cup Final between Celtic and Motherwell at Hampden Park on May 19, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Pundit cannot explain why Celtic star was not selected.

James Forrest of Celtic celebrates his goal with Callum McGregor during the Betfred Cup Final at Hampden Park on November 26, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

James Forrest scored four goals for Celtic at the weekend in their 6-0 demolition of St Johnstone.

It wasn't enough to get him a place in Scotland's starting XI last night.

 

Forrest was named as a substitute as Scotland took on Israel last night in the UEFA Nations League.

Former Celtic star Chris Sutton said he was confused why Forrest was snubbed by Scotland manager Alex McLeish.

Just two Celtic players were named in McLeish's starting XI, Callum McGregor and Kieran Tierney.

Some Celtic fans are feeling a vibe against their club from the ex-Rangers boss in charge of the Scotland national team and Forrest's snub was a big talking point.

Forrest came on as a substitute in the 67th minute with the score at 1-1. Scotland went on to lose the game with Tierney scoring an own goal.
