On top of this, Forrest has also won the PFA Player of the Year, PFA Scotland Players’ Player of the Year, and the SFWA Footballer of the Year for his 2018/19 campaign.

The midfielder spoke with the club’s official website on his awards, and he could not be happier with his accolades.

I’m delighted to win another award, and it’s been a tremendous season. At this time in the season, you collect awards both personally and for the team, and it’s a great time. I’m looking forward to Saturday as well!

Last year was the best scoring form of my career, and I’ve pushed on this year. Managers want forward players to contribute, and when you’re playing for Celtic, and the national team as well, there are players that are looked on to do that. 

I think it’s good when you’re contributing and helping the team, and it gives you confidence as well.

Forrest has had his best scoring season in the league this time around as Celtic have gone onto win the Scottish Premiership for the eighth successive season.

Celtic have the Scottish Cup final against Hearts to come on Saturday, which is the game that could secure them an unprecedented treble Treble and supporters will be hoping Forrest can be at his best at Hampden Park.
