JAMES FORREST has won 12 major honours in his eight years as a Celtic player.

The 26-year-old winger has picked up 20 Scotland international caps in his glittering career so far.

However, he is aware his brother Alan, who plays for Ayr United, has managed something he has failed to achieve – score a goal against Sevco Rangers.

In fact, his sibling has knocked in two against the Ibrox side, the last one coming in his side’s 6-1 Scottish Cup defeat at Somerset Park last month.

Forrest, who has netted against every other top-flight side, is now aiming to rectify the situation when he is likely to face Graeme Murty’s side in Govan a week on Sunday.

The 16-goal wide Bhoy said: “Alan┬áhas told me that he scored against them twice now, so, hopefully, I can peg him back.

“I would love to do that. It will be a hard game. They have being doing well since the break and it is always a tough game whenever we go to Ibrox.

“This is the first year I have ever hit double figures.

“There are a few more games to go and I just want to play as many as I can and score a few more – I would be happy with that.

“We’ve got 10 league games, a few internationals and a few Cup games left as well, so, hopefully, I can keep going and keep doing what I’m doing.”

Forrest added: “Every game is a pressure game and there is a lot on every game you play.

“It doesn’t matter who you are playing – there is always massive pressure.

“But when you are playing the teams round about you, then you want to show that you are at Celtic for a reason.

“You want to play in Cup Finals and go and play in the big games.”
