Celticâ€™s James Forrest has had an operation to repair a groin problem.
The 22-year old winger has been battling the injury for a large portion of the season and has now undergone surgery in a bid to get back to full fitness for the 2014/15 campaign.
Forrest was being considered for Gordon Strachanâ€™s Scotland squad for a friendly against Nigeria on May 28 but will now focus on his rehabilitation so he can be available for Celticâ€™s Champions Leaguer qualifiers in July.
