Forrest made his debut twice as memorable by scoring a wonderful goal against Motherwell at Celtic Park in a 4-0 SPL win on May 1, 2010.

The winger is a product of the Celtic Youth Academy, and began to push into the first team after picking up championship, Scottish Youth Cup and Glasgow Cup medals as a teenager.

He travelled with the first-team to take part in the Emirates Cup 2010 and won the Young Player of the Tournament award, helping him force his way into Neil Lennon's side.

His rapid progress has continued unabated over the past few seasons, and in January 2012 he was named by FIFA as one of the brightest young talents in world football.

Forrest is now an established Scottish internationalist, having made his debut against Ireland in May 2011. And he scored the crucial last-minute winner for Celtic earlier this season, securing the comeback against Shakhter Karagandy and sealing their place in the UEFA Champions League group stages.
