JAMES FORREST insists Celtic will surge through the run-in to the season as the Hoops zero in on a historic back-to-back double treble.
The 16-goal winger admitted the players are in high spirits as they prepare for rwo successive home games, tomorrow night’s Premiership clash with Dundee and the Scottish Cup quarter-final against Morton on Saturday.
Reflecting on Sunday’s 2-0 win over Aberdeen at Pittodrie, Forrest said: “It was an important three points after Thursday night.
“It was a statement to go up there and score a few goals and keep a clean sheet. It was a good performance all round.
“We’ve been away for nearly a week with games in Russia and Aberdeen, so Sunday showed the team spirit.
“It was a really good result and now we have two home games to look forward to
“It’s an important part of the season with big league games and the Cup, as well. I just want to keep going and playing as many games as I can.
“Now that the schedule will calm down a bit, there aren’t as many midweek games, so that’ll be good and give us a boost for the remainder of the season.”
Forrest looked at tomorrow night’s visit of Neil McCann’s Tayside outfit and added: “We know it’s going to be a hard game.
“They’ll come and make it hard, but, just like every game you play with Celtic you know you just need to be at it from the start.”
