Rodgers Confirms Return of Several Key Players Whilst Praising ‘Wonderful Technician’ James Forrest

Rodgers Confirms Return of Several Key Players Whilst Praising ‘Wonderful Technician’ James Forrest

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has confirmed the return of several key players to his squad this afternoon, whilst lavishing praise on in-form winger James Forrest.

The Hoops boss has been forced to do without club captain Scott Brown and No.9 Leigh Griffiths in recent weeks, but it was revealed today that both are back in training and ‘looking fit’, according to the Northern Irishman.

Moreover, they’re joined by Nir Bitton, who has been on the sidelines for the best part of 10 months, and Kieran Tierney should also be available for this weekend’s trip to Hamilton despite missing Scotland’s games against Albania and Israel.

Whilst Tierney missed Scotland’s vital Nations League matches, James Forrest certainly didn’t, with the 27-year-old bagging an impressive five goals over the two games, and Rodgers reckons it’s high time his player received the praise he deserved:

How important could the four returning players be for Celtic? And will Forrest continue his excellent run of form this weekend?
