After breaking into the senior team in 2010, he has gradually developed as an important player for the club.
However, Forrest has taken his game to a whole new level in the last two seasons under Brendan Rodgers. Last season, he scored 17 goals in all competitions.
Forrest scored four goals in a game against St Johnstone last month. He has scored in his last three games, including in both the fixtures against Hearts.
