BARRIE MCKAY insists he has nothing to prove to Nottingham Forest as he gets set to face his former club.

The winger moved from the City Ground to Swansea after a difficult spell with the Reds.

But the former Rangers kid won’t have any added motivation for the Championship clash this weekend.

McKay said: “The first six months at Forest went really well for me, but I struggled a bit over the last six. It was tough to go from playing every game to not really featuring at all.

“The manager brought in his own players and had different ideas, but that can happen in football.

“I was training with the under-23 side and obviously that’s not what you want to be doing. You want to be part of the first team and contributing.

“But I don’t really feel like I’ve got anything to prove to Forest. I went there and felt I did well for them.

“It’s still early days for me here at Swansea and I’ve still got a lot to prove to the manager and fans. It’s up to me to prove my worth here rather than thinking about the past.”

McKay has missed Swansea’s last two matches against Crystal Palace and Millwall.

But he is eager to impress boss Graham Potter this term.

McKay said: “The doctor just told me to rest up and get myself better and I’m thankful that I only missed one game.

“The boys really dug deep and got a great win at Millwall which just showed the spirit we have here.

“But hopefully the manager will put his trust in me again and I can repay that. I came here to play games and that’s what I want to do.”
