Celtic dazzler James Forrest still needs to prove himself in Europe

Celtic ace James Forrest is hands down the best player in Scotland right now and his form so far this season has been dazzling.

The right-winger has made 25 appearances for the Bhoys across all competitions this campaign, scoring nine goals and supplying 12 assists in return.

He also recently scored five goals in just two international fixtures for Scotland and is scintillating in front of goal.

But remarkably he may still feel he’s got a big point to prove in Europe and there would be no better time than on Thursday night to right a wrong.

Forrest is certainly the individual Celtic may look to against Rosenborg to be the difference, but his record isn’t brilliant in the elite competitions.

The skilful wide man has scored just once in 20 Champions League appearances, while he’s failed to hit the net in the same amount of Europa League games.

Many feel that Forrest has now hit his peak and moved on to another gear, which is why he’ll now have the perfect opportunity to prove that away in a European fixture on Thursday.
