Forrest humbled by interest but keen to remain with Celtic

Impressive youngster James Forrest says he is happy to stay with Scottish champions Celtic.

The 20-year old, who was named the PFA Young Player of the Year and was selected in the PFA Team of the Year this season, has been attracting plenty of interest from clubs in England including Tottenham.

Although Forrest is honoured to be linked with top flight English clubs, he says he is content to remain at Parkhead and continue his development with the Hoops with Champions League football on the horizon.

"It is good that teams are watching me," Forrest said. "It means I'm doing well but I'm happy at Celtic and I want to get Celtic into the Champions League.

"I don't think anybody will want to leave, we know there is a couple of qualifiers and we could be in the Champions League so we are going to give it our all.

"It is a young team and the experience we got from the Europa League this season will definitely help us. "It was my first European campaign and I managed to play in every game and that's what you want to do, play in big games and test yourself."
