JAMES FORREST was dismayed Celtic couldn’t convert their dominance into goals in the 0-0 draw with Hearts at Parkhead.

The winger came closest to the breakthrough goal with a drive that struck the post as the Hoops passed up a series of excellent opportunities in the first-half.

Forrest said: “We were disappointed not to get the three points with the amount of chances we created and we could have score a lot of goals if the first one went in.

“But that’s football sometimes and we just need to get on with it and try and get three points next time we play. We are just focused on our own game.

“In the first-half, we had a few clear chances and on another day they go in. It didn’t happen, but credit to the boys for keeping going. We pinned them into their own half for most of the match so we will look for the positives.”

Forrest was one of Ronny Deila’s best performers on a frustrating afternoon in the east end of Glasgow.

Tynecastle defender Callum Paterson was forced into a booking early in the game as he thwarted Forrest’s progress and he was perhaps lucky to avoid further punishment in the second period.

However, Forrest said: “It was a good battle. There were a couple of fouls here and there, but you just get on with it. The ref didn’t give another yellow and that’s it.”
