Celtic got the better of Dunfermline at home in the second round of the Scottish League Cup.
After a goalless first half, Michael Johnston put the Hoops in the lead in the 55th minute, and Tom Beadling restored parity for the visiting team in the 77th minute.
Scotland international winger Forrest, 28, scored the winner for Celtic in the 114th minute, as the Hoops won the tie 2-1 after extra time.
