Winger James Forrest is ready for the challenge presented by the return of Patrick Roberts to Celtic Park.

The 20-year-old recently arrived on a season-long loan from Manchester City following an earlier very successful extended stay with the champions, during which he helped them towards winning four trophies.

“Paddy was here for 18 months before,” Forrest recounted to BBC Scotland. “A massive club like Celtic is always looking to make the squad stronger so it’s good to have competition for places.

“This year has started well for me. I just want to keep going and keep playing,” he added. “At Celtic you have two or three players at international level for each position. Every player knows that they need to keep at it or they won’t be playing.”
