Celtic winger Forrest happy to help with scoring burden

James Forrest said it is a good feeling to help out with the scoring duties for Celtic.

The 22-year old winger netted the equalizer in the 1-1 draw with Hibernian on the weekend and said he was more than happy to assist the clubs leading scorers with the burden of getting goals especially after Kris Commons was injured on the weekend.

"I am happy to take on extra responsibility if Kris is out," said Forrest ahead of Tuesday's Champions League clash with Ajax. "But we also have guys like Georgios Samaras, Anthony Stokes and Teemu Pukki.

"I've played in big games before and this is another one. I'll treat it the same and I'm looking forward to it.

"I love these games. It's class. All the boys will tell you the atmosphere is frightening. We want to give something back to the fans for their support. We all want to give them something to cheer about."
