Celtic star James Forrest believes that recent results have shown that the Hoops are starting to improve after a slow start to the season, the Glasgow Times reports.

The Hoops were disrupted at the start of the season. That was thanks to the postponement of two league games and a 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock.

However, the 2-1 win over St Mirren in midweek was Celtic’s fourth in a row in the Scottish Premiership. Forrest feels that the Hoops are finally getting to where they want to be after a sluggish start.

“It’s good now that we’re slowly but surely getting to where we want to be” Forrest said, as quoted by the Glasgow Times.

“We’ve done well”

“Since dropping points at Killie we’ve done well in the games. We’ve managed to win all our games since then and have scored quite a lot of goals as well.”


The Hoops weren’t at their flowing best against St Mirren. However, you get games like that in a season where the result is more important than the performance overall.

Overall though, Celtic do look in a far better place than the team was a few weeks ago. The draw vs Kilmarnock and Champions League exit to Ferencvaros could have knocked the team off course. However, this Celtic side is made of strong stuff.

Team knows how to bounce back from adversity

They know how to bounce back from adversity. That is what the team has done over the past nine seasons. Now Celtic have the chance to go top of the league for at least 24 hours on Saturday with a win over Livingston.

A win by two goals or more will take the Hoops ahead of Rangers in the Premiership table on goal difference. That should give the team plenty of motivation for the fixture. Five league wins in a row would be a good way to show that Celtic are back on form. That would be the form of a team who have more than gradually improved.

In other news, Charlton reportedly expect Celtic to make another bid for Alfie Doughty.
