What do we think?
Even though Neil Lennon’s side managed to rescue a point against Livingston thanks to a last-minute goal from Tomas Rogic (per WhoScored), there were still plenty of Celtic fans around on Twitter that felt something needed to be said on Forrest’s poor display. The hope for the Celtic fans now will surely be that Forrest can improve on Wednesday’s performance as they continue their season.
