‘He is available’: Celtic head coach Brendan Rodgers confirms Celtic star to return for Lazio match clash against Celtic



‘He is available,’ Brendan Rodgers said, confirming that the Celtic star will be back for the match against Lazio.It has been announced by Brendan Rodgers that James Forrest will be included in the Celtic squad for their Champions League match against Lazio.

The 32-year-old player did not play in Celtic’s match against Motherwell, which ended in a scoreless draw over the weekend. Hyunjun Yang was met with criticism for his performance.Given Celtic’s injury list, the return of James Forrest is a relief since the squad needs more depth in terms of quality, particularly in the event that important first-team players aren’t performing up to their potential and the new faces aren’t getting the job done consistently.


Brendan Rodgers disclosed that James Forrest “didn’t train much” over the international break, which is the reason why he was not considered a risk for the weekend, as he stated in his news conference.


In the days leading up to the trip to Italy, the Celtic manager expressed his thoughts on how the team was missing that “dynamic” nature and how he was looking forward to see his experienced head out wide.For Lazio, James Forrest is back in action.

According to Rodgers, “It is abundantly clear that we are missing a great deal of players who are dynamic for us.” “That has the potential to alter the way that the football game seems to us.


On the other hand, it presents an opportunity for other guys to enter the game. In the upcoming game, James (Forrest) will be eligible to play.


“He didn’t train as much during the international break, so rather than him sitting on the bench at the weekend, we wanted him to give him some training days until the game, so he is available, which is good for us,” said the owner of the company.While it is true that the squad will not advance to the knockout stages, there is still the possibility of securing a position in the Europa League and gaining a sense of pride.


It would be a terribly dismal campaign for Celtic to conclude the season with just one point, even if the performances have been better than the tally implies they have been. Celtic cannot simply finish the season with one point.
