Neil Lennon raves about important Forrest after 2-1 win

Neil Lennon has spoken to the Daily Record, admitting that James Forrest left him in disbelief last night during the 2-1 win over, Paisley side, St Mirren.

He told the Daily Record: “It was a bullet. We were all taken aback by it on the bench and rubbing our eyes.

“Ryan (Christie) has flipped it on the angle and it’s a brilliantly guided header by James.

“He’s a player who goes under the radar, but he’s scored so many important goals for us and he’s done it again.”

He continued:“We have set them some targets now for this block of games before we break up for the internationals.

“We had a great win at the weekend, we won 5-0, but we were ragged. There was none of that. Our intensity off the ball was very very good and that gave us good control of the game, albeit that we didn’t get five goals.

“In terms of the shape and the attitude of the players, it was a lot better.”
