BOBBY LENNOX was the only Celtic player in history to score a goal in three winning League Cup Finals.

Until yesterday that is.

James Forrest added to his goals against Dundee United and Aberdeen with a sublime left foot shot which curled into the bottom of the Motherwell net.

He walked out of Hampden with his 12th winners medal and a broad smile on his face.

“You want to play in cup finals for Celtic and win trophies, and there’s nothing better than scoring and helping the team out,” said the man of the match. “It’s excellent to contribute and I’m hungry to win more.

“All the boys love the big game and pressure of playing for Celtic - it’s not just cup finals, but every game there is pressure on you to do well and you just have to keep working hard. That’s four trophies in a row and we just want to continue that.

“As a Celtic player, you must be ready to play in big games such as cup finals and be prepared to win trophies. It’s a delight when you achieve this, and we want to keep going and win as many as we can.

"It’s an unbelievable buzz to win trophies, but it’s relentless at this club with the game we play, and we’ve got to be ready to go again in midweek.”

When Patrick Roberts returned, it was thought Forrest start less games this season. However, the winger is playing the best football of his career.

Now 26, Forrest should be coming into his prime and there were times during in Sunday’s final when Motherwell had no clue how to stop him.

“I’m feeling as good as I have in my career,” he said. “As soon as the manager came in last season I got a lift and it turned into the best I’d had, but the way I’ve started this season has been even better and now I just want to keep that momentum going.

“Having Pat fit again is another incentive for me to be at my past, but as I’ve said so often in the past, having two or three top players in every position keeps us all on our toes.”
