JAMES FORREST has told Celtic: “Make me a life Bhoy!”

The 26-year-old Scotland international winger said: “This has definitely been my best season because I’ve hit double figures for goals.

“But I don’t think about that too much, with so many big games coming up. I just want to do my best for the team and I’ll see where that takes me.

“I’d like to stay here for the rest of my career because I’ve only ever played for Celtic. I have to work hard and be at my best every day or I’ll not be here.

“I’d love to be here for as long as I possibly can and, hopefully, that will happen. It’s strange to even think about playing for any other club, I’ve been here since I was nine.

“Thinking about playing somewhere else is weird. So, hopefully, I’ll stay here and be successful.

“When the manager first came in, that was the closest I’ve been to leaving.

“I was down to the last six months of my contract. But I always made it clear that I wanted to stay.

“Thankfully, the manager told me to have a good pre-season and we’d get it done. When we got it signed I was delighted.

“I knew I wanted to stay. There was never really any interest from other clubs, but in my head – whatever I might have heard – I wanted to stay. I wasn’t interested in anything else.

“When I signed, I didn’t look back. I’ve managed to kick on and do well.”
