JAMES FORREST has won a treble before he attempts to power Celtic towards a treble treble against in the Scottish Cup Final against Hearts at Hampden on Saturday.

The Scotland international winger has been voted Premiership Player of the Season to complete a clean sweep of personal awards.

Forrest has already collected the PFA Scotland and the Scottish Football Writers’ Association honours in recognition of a prolific campaign for club and country.

The 27-year-old forward, who has scored 22 goals for the Hoops and Scotland, was delighted with his latest prize.

Forrest, speaking to Sky Sports, said: “I’m really grateful to have won this award and it’s indication of what a great season we have had as a team.

“Last season was my best season in terms of stats, but I have kicked on again this season and I have had the added aspect of the international scene and doing well for Scotland.

“We know it will be tough against Hearts on Saturday, but we are so determined to finish the season with all three trophies again.”

The Celtic raider scored a hat-trick for Scotland in the 3-2 European Nations League confrontation against Israel at Hampden in November.

However, he went one better for the Parkhead men when he rattled in four in a sensational first-half performance as the champions swept to a 6-0 triumph over St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park in October.
