Scott Brown Describes James Forrest as “Unplayable” After Partick Thistle Hat-Trick

Scott Brown has taken to Instagram to praise Celtic team-mate James Forrest, following the winger’s hat-trick against Partick Thistle this afternoon.

Celtic narrowly sealed their place in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup with a 3-2 victory over the Jags at Parkhead, with Forrest providing an outstanding man-of-the-match performance.

Brendan Rodgers spoke with BBC Scotland shortly after the final whistle and admitted Celtic will need to play “much better” than they did today if they are to retain the Scottish Cup.

However, attention now turns to Thursday night’s mouth-watering Europa League tie with Zenit St Petersburg.
