Celtic attacker James Forrest has told the Glasgow Evening Times that he was gutted that he missed a headed chance to score against Kilmarnock.

Forrest had a glorious opportunity to get on the scoresheet for Celtic in their 3-1 victory yesterday, but his header was well saved by Laurentiu Branescu.

Ryan Christie did tuck in the rebound, as Celtic picked up the three points.

And Forrest admits that he was disappointed not to get his name on the scoresheet.

 

He said: “It was just because I don’t score many headers! “I’ve only ever scored one, at Kilmarnock, but that was from about two yards out.

“My wee brother scored a header yesterday as well, so I was desperate for that one.

“The boys told me afterwards it was a brilliant save from the keeper, but I think they were just trying to make me feel better. I must admit I was a bit gutted.”

Forrest’s disappointment is likely to have been short lived, as Celtic’s win helped continue their strong run of form in recent weeks.

The Bhoys have picked up some impressive results of late, and their performances have also been highly credible.

Celtic have taken maximum points so far this season, winning all six of the games that they have played in the league so far.
