    James Forrest: I want to continue bringing success to this club

    By: Tony Connelly on 30 Oct, 2019 19:51

  • JAMES Forrest is looking forward to continuing to help Celtic win more silverware after signing a new contract with the club. Forrest extended his stay with the Hoops today (October 30) after agreeing a new four-year deal that will see him remain a Celt until at least the summer of 2023.

    The 28-year-old has won 17 pieces of silverware since making his debut back in May 2010 away to Motherwell, including all eight in the current run of league titles as well as five Scottish Cups and four League Cups.

    Seeking exclusively to Celtic TV immediately after extending his stay with the club, Forrest said he was excited to play his part in bring more success to the club he first joined as a nine-year-old.

    “I love it here," he said. "I came through the Youth Academy and every year I just enjoy it more. I’m absolutely delighted to extend my stay here and I’m looking forward to winning more league titles and cups with the club.

    “The last couple of years especially have been unbelievable. When you keep winning trophies it makes you eager and wanting to strive to win more. That pushes you on for more and I want to keep winning as much as I can.”

    Forrest won the PFA Player of the Year, Premiership Player of the Year and Football Writers’ Player of the Year at the end of last season in which he scored 18 goals and assisted with 20 in his 56 appearances.

    He said the pressure to succeed at a club like Celtic was huge but insisted the fans made it all worthwhile and added he was determined to continue working hard for them over the coming years.

    “If you ask any player or member of staff, they all know how much the fans mean to the club and how big this club is," he said. "It’s great to be here, especially when you’re winning trophies and doing well, it’s a great feeling.

    “With the players the club signs it’s always competitive. Every few days you’re playing against a good team and bettering yourself while looking forward to European games as well. I’m really happy to be staying here for a good bit longer.

    “I enjoy playing for Celtic, I’ve been in the first team for a good few years now and I want to keep working hard to see how many years I can stay in the first team and keep on top of my game.”
