The winger came through the youth ranks at Parkhead and has gone on to establish himself as a crucial first-teamer at the club, winning a whopping eight Premiership titles, five Scottish Cups and four League Cups, and could cement himself as a genuine Celtic legend if he helps his side win their ninth consecutive league title this season.
The 28-year-old’s current contract runs until 2022, but the man himself has revealed he is closing in on putting pen-to-paper on fresh terms.
Speaking via the Sun, he said: “I think it’s near enough done.
“Hopefully it’ll be really soon since everything is basically agreed.
“I would like to get it done soon and just focus on playing.
“I think when you look at the last couple of years it’s been tighter. Other teams are strengthening as well.
“It’s really tight just now and both teams are doing well in Europe.
“It’s competitive and we know that. But we just need to stick to our own game and worry about ourselves and we’re playing well. We just need to keep that form up.
“You’ve seen how close it is with both teams on the same amount of points.
“It’s good because you raise your standards and you raise your game when you know that you can’t afford to slip up or teams around will punish you.
“It keeps the edge and we go into every game knowing we need to be at the top of our game to get the points we want.”
Forrest is almost certain to start this Wednesday’s Premiership clash with St Mirren in Glasgow, with Neil Lennon’s side currently tied on points at the top of the table with bitter rivals Rangers.
Do you think Forrest could be a key figure in firing Celtic to the title, and has he done enough to be considered a true Bhoys icon?
