Celtic’s James Forrest might have enjoyed a decade of huge success with the club, but he has not had time to reflect on it, the Celtic View reports.

Forrest made his Celtic debut in 2010, and since then has gone on to become one of the most important – and decorated – players at the club.

He has won eight league titles, five Scottish Cups and five league cups in his time with the club, a remarkable 18 winners medals.

However, he has disclosed that due to the busy nature of the football season he rarely gets time to look back at his time at Celtic.

“Hard to look back”

“It’s hard to look back too much, because we so often play game-to-game, and that makes reflection less straightforward” he said, as quoted by the Celtic View (Volume 55, Issue 33, Page 12).

Forrest then went on to say that he isn’t done yet, and hopes to win more honours for the club.

“I can’t believe it’s been so long, to be honest! Here’s hoping I’ve got many years ahead of me and many more successes as well.”

No reason why player can’t win more trophies

There is no real reason why Forrest cannot go on to have many more successes at Celtic, as he is only 28. He could well add two more winner’s medals to his tally by the end of the season, and maybe only injuries will stop him from collection more honours with the Hoops.

When the dust settles, and Forrest has time to look at his career, he will go done as one of Celtic’s best players of the last 20 years.

The consistency he has shown has been excellent, as he has got older he has got even better as a player, which is credit to Forrest for all the hard work he has put in.

Just how good a player has James Forrest been over the last 10 years? Will he go down as one of Celtic’s greats? Share your thoughts below with a comment in our new discussion forum…
