Some Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to slam James Forrest for his performance in the 1-1 draw against Hibernian.
The 28-year-old was making his seventh league start of the campaign, having already netted two goals in the Scottish Premiership so far this season – Forrest has eight goals in all competitions for the Bhoys this term.
However, he wasn’t at his best against Hibernian.
The Scotland international was subbed off in the 84th minute of what was a disappointing draw, a result which has allowed Rangers to make up some ground in the title race.
Unfortunately for Neil Lennon’s side however, they could not find a second goal, with some fans pointing the finger at Forrest.
One supporter said that the forward was “well off it” against Hibs, whereas another said that he should be dropped.
Let’s take a look at some more of the Twitter reaction…
Forrest was well off it today. McGregor has been off it for a while now and I think without Brown & Christie we may well have lost the game today. Edouard simply has to stay on when we’re looking for a goal though – I’m now thinking we’re looking light in that area.

Forrest was sub-standard didn’t look comfortable at all the left. Correct on McGregor, he’s been worryingly flat in some recent games. And Celtic’s cause wasn’t helped by Christie not being as devastatingly effective as usual after his impressive leveller.Too many off the boil.

That may be – but if all the Celtic staff had their mortgages on a draw they could not have played it any better. Looked like a thrown game. Jullien, Ajer, Boli, Brown, McGregor, Forrest, Eduard, all 2 out of 10, just for showing up. A disgraceful display – absolutely no urgency.

James Forrest needs to be dropped, i know he’s scored a lotta big goals but he runs about like a 5 yr old at a wedding, loads of time doesn’t contribute

I usually think you can tell if James Forrest will turn up after about 10 minutes. Today was one of those days he contributes nothing. Would have been better in the house. A fairly typical Easter Rd result for us tho.
