Lennon upbeat for Forrest


SCOTTISH PREMIER LEAGUE:James Forrest has won his battle to be in the Celtic squad for their first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash against Juventus tomorrow night, according to manager Neil Lennon. The Scotland winger has been battling with a hamstring complaint and was missing for the 3-1 win over Inverness at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium on Saturday.

Nick Ross gave Caley the lead but goals from Kris Commons, debutant Rami Gershon and Miku saw an easy win for the visitors who rested most of their big guns. Lennon appeared unimpressed when told Rangers have reportedly offered Juventus their Murray Park training ground ahead of the tie. He said: “I have no comment to make on Rangers, they can do what they like.” However, he was upbeat about Forrest. “He has had the two scans and he came through all clear so he will be in the squad.”

Juventus had a 2-0 victory over Fiorentina on Saturday night.
