Some Celtic fans feel James Forrest should have picked up a player of the year award at last night’s club ceremony.
Callum McGregor picked up the club and players’ Player Of The Year awards after an exceptional season in the heart of the Hoops midfield, a fine achievement indeed.

McGregor has been superb throughout the campaign, scoring six goals and providing 13 assists, as well as providing an all-round midfield game that has given the team so much drive and stability on a consistent basis.
Forrest though has had his best season in a Celtic shirt, scoring a magnificent 17 goals and creating a frankly ridiculous 20 assists. No-one in the Hoops time has directly contributed to more goals than he has.
The winger has matured into one of our most important players after a few years of frustrating form. For him to miss out on awards again is a real shame.
These fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
How James Forrest never won player of the year is beyond me. McGregor hasn’t kicked a ball since the rat left.

Gutted Jimmy Forrest never won anything at POTY last night hes had a great season but Callum McGregor has been every bit as good so fair play to him????

Well done McGregor on winning player of the year been excellent at times this season… that being said James Forrest can count himself very unlucky, for me he’s been our player of the year. Been outstanding all season and especially the last few months ???????? https://t.co/jVWJPu3SIz

As delighted as I am for Callum McGregor winning both @CelticFC POTY and PPOTY awards tonight, I can't help but feel really disappointed for Jamesy Forrest. Two years in a row now he's just been beaten to the POTY award after really good seasons. Was always going to be close ????????

Fair play to Callum McGregor. Outstanding all season. However, a feel for James Forrest. Big game player and has came up with goals, assists, the lot, in the biggest games we’ve had. Ma player of the year in my opinion????

Forrest and Eddy have made the difference in so many matches when games have been tight.
POTY and YPOTY should have been theirs

I take nothing away from Callum McGregor but James Forrest was my poty . His goals in big games have been crucial this season not only that his development into a top winger has been fantastic despite some criticism the stats speak for themselves! James Forrest ???????? pic.twitter.com/M8O75LJRWU
