Celtic are proving to be an unstoppable force in the Scottish Premiership but they wouldn’t be as superior if it wasn’t for their star players constantly chipping in at Parkhead.
One player who’s enjoying arguably one of the best seasons in his football career is James Forrest.
The Scotland international has produced 37 goals and assists in all competitions for Celtic this season, so it comes as no surprise that a Celtic fan representing C’mon The Hoops has likened him to Lionel Messi.
Forrest’s pace and dribbling ability are just two attributes that make him a similar player to the Argentine, with his large amount of contributions also backing up the Hoops fan’s point.
Of course, the 27-year-old, who is valued at £2.7 million (by Transfermarkt), will never be as good as the Barcelona man but he’s definitely the closest Celtic will get to having their own Messi.
Celtic fans, do you think Forrest is the closest player to Messi in your current squad? Join in with the discussion by commenting down below!
