‘Never Going To Happen’ ‘Times That By 3’ – Celtic Fans Laugh Off Report That Winger Could Be Sold To Liverpool For £8m

Liverpool are tracking Celtic winger James Forrest, according to reports in Scotland.

The Reds are said to be watching the 27-year-old ahead of a summer bid for the Scottish international, with the Hoops believed to be prepared to sell for a fee in the region of £8m.

Celtic fans on Twitter dismissed suggestions that Forrest would be sold for such a low amount:

There’s no doubt that Forrest deserves the attention from English Premier League clubs considering his form so far this campaign.

His 11 goals and 17 assists in all competitions are very impressive numbers, but Celtic would surely hold out for much more than the fee being suggested.

Considering Forrest’s allegiance to the Bhoys after spending almost a decade in the first team, it doesn’t seem likely that the wide man would even want to leave Celtic Park in any case. The midfielder signed a contract extension back in September, keeping him at the Scottish champions until 2022.
