Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster has explained that James Forrest has been getting pelters for his new autobiography.

The Celtic hero has a new book coming out called “Homegrown Hero”. The autobiography is set to come out on December 3rd, with the story of Jimmy’s Celtic career set to be laid out for supporters.

Forrest has been with the club all his days. He’s experienced the high points under Neil Lennon and Brendan Rodgers. But he’s also been there for the rough times under Ronny Deila in particular.

Yet despite it all, you wouldn’t think Forrest has aged at all when you look at him. And speaking in the Celtic View about the winger (Volume 55, Issue 15, Page 15), Forster praised Forrest after having a wee dig.

“There’s a little bit of banter in the changing room about the book. A few of the lads have asked if it’s a colouring book!

“It’ll be interesting to see what’s in it. Forrest’s been fantastic for this club and has achieved so much so it’ll be good to hear his take on everything. He’s not that different to how he comes across on camera because he’s a humble guy and very laid back.

“He’s very professional, he works hard and doesn’t let anything faze him, he’s very calm and level-headed and is always there for a chat so he’s a great guy to be around. Everyone in the changing room would tell you he’s such a nice guy and is so down to earth.”

Forrest will go down as a Celtic great – new autobiography will be intriguing

You can’t argue with anything Forster has said here. He’s always had exactly the right attitude we would want our players to have at the club. Forrest epitomises exactly what we want to see out of the academy too.

The title “Homegrown Hero” is totally suitable for his new book. That’s exactly what he is. Having played with the first-team for nearly 10 years, the time is right for him to start telling his story.

It likely won’t be long before the testimonial either. He’s given such tremendous service to Celtic. However, that doesn’t mean his days at Parkhead are about to end anytime soon.

Forrest started the season in sensational form and went on a run of six goals in six games. In recent weeks, those performance levels have dipped, but we all know we’re never far away from seeing him back on the scoresheet again.

His autobiography is bound to be revealing in many different ways. From the highs of Barcelona to THAT Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Rangers – Forrest has been through it all.

The release date for his book can’t come quick enough. He may be taking pelters for it from his teammates, but you can bet they’ll all get a copy when it comes out.
