“Terribly underrated” – So many Celtic fans laud “unsung hero” who “deserves huge credit”

Celtic were named Scottish Premiership champions earlier this week and supporters at Parkhead have been congratulating every player past and present that has contributed to a stunning ninth straight title.

However, one fan believes midfielder James Forrest deserves a lot more credit than what he has been receiving, which has sparked a similar reaction from several of the Bhoys faithful on social media.

The 28-year-old came through the youth system at Celtic and has been a frequent presence in the senior setup since 2010 having racked up five appearances shy of the big 400 in that time.

It means the Scotsman has been part of each of the nine triumphs and this season has arguably been his best. Forrest has provided 16 goals and 22 assists in 47 appearances, via Transfermarkt.
