Celtic's Forrest labels Ajax clash as a must-win

Celtic's meeting with Ajax on Tuesday night is a must-win according to winger James Forrest.

The Hoops host the Dutch giants at Parkhead in the third Champions League group match and Forrest insists they need a victory after losses to AC Milan and Barcelona.

"Is it a must-win game? You can put it that way. We need to get three points and we have the players to do that. Let's hope we do," he said.

"We played Ajax in pre-season last year and they were very good. They pass it well, they have a lot of pace and they need the points. We expect them to be attacking.

"These are crucial games. There will be a great atmosphere and the boys are up for it."

Celtic currently sit bottom of Group H with zero points from their two outings whilst Ajax are on one thanks to their 1-1 draw with Milan in early October.
