The form of Celtic winger James Forrest is so devastatingly good that his team-mates are scared of him in training, Kieran Tierney has told the Daily Record.
The 27-year-old is in blistering form this season. His 17 goals and 20 assists have seen him become the most feared player in Scottish football.
Forrest kicked off proceedings in Sunday’s semi-final with Aberdeen, scoring a beauty of a goal for the Hoops.
Tierney is another of Celtic’s top performers, but he isn’t relishing training at the moment and holds him in high regard.
He told the Daily Record: “He is one of the best players I have ever played with. I hate playing against him in training because he’s just so difficult to go up against.”
The Hoops left-back could be subject of interest this summer but right now he is delighted for the in-form Forrest.
He continued: “I am so pleased for him. He’s a hard worker, keeps his head down and doesn’t like the headlines. He’s a special player.”
Forrest has been in sensational form this season and is comfortably on course to win every personal accolade going.
Tierney is right when he says that Forrest is special and he has practically single-handedly led Celtic along the path towards a triple treble this season.
On current form, it remains to be seen if any English clubs might be forthcoming with a move for the winger.
His goals and assist total is remarkable and he really is in the form of his life right now.
