Brendan Rodgers has talked up the chances of both Scott Brown and James Forrest signing new deals at the club.

The Scotsman have quoted the Hoops boss as saying the deals are close with both players.

Scott has made it clear he wants to be here and I am sure there will be a deal done pretty soon on that. 
He is quite relaxed about it. He knows what we think of him here at the club so hopefully that will be done.

James and his people will be speaking with the club and, likewise, a player we would love to extend here because he has been absolutely brilliant in my time here.

Rodgers will be hoping that the duo can follow Leigh Griffiths, who is also closing in on a new deal with the Bhoys.

Brown’s new deal has dominated the headlines recently, with dominant midfielder making his feelings very clear about extending his stay at the club.

Forrest was one of the unsung heroes of the previous title-winning campaign with a number of impressive performances, helping the Hoops on their way.

The news will come as a huge boost to the club as they prepare to take on St Mirren in a bid to close the gap between themselves and Hearts on Friday night.
