James Forrest has signed a new 3 year extension on his current contract.
His old contract was due to expire in May 2023.
So it looks like James Forrest's new contract will expire in May 2026,just before his 35th Birthday.
A One Man Club. ?.

Horrendous decision.

Based on the last couple of seasons I'm a bit disappointed to be honest. If Ange can get him back to where he was under Rodgers then he'll be a big asset but, as a high earner who's not particularly high up the pecking order, I would have liked to see him move on.

Very suprised by this, thought we were looking to inprove on this position. One that could come back to bite us.

I'm shocked that James Forrest has been offered a contract extension ? but not surprised he's signed it.

Money for old and ineffective rope.

Comes as a big surprise to me, as I thought players over 30 were only offered short extensions? I appreciate JF has had a terrible time with injury all season and is further down the pecking order than he has ever been, but if he can get fully fit and it's a big IF; Ange must think there's a place for him. Or does it mean Jota may not sign and we are covering ourselves?

Surely it’s on reduced terms if not it makes no sense for a player in his twilight years who is no longer a regular to get the same money he is on now .

I think this is a no-brainer really, and I'm surprised a bit that Forrest has been copping so much flack this year. He's looked good when he's come on to me, and of course we know what he can do when injury free. This will be about consolidating depth, I imagine, with Maeda a likely starter on the left and Jota/ Abada ahead of him on the right. Tho clearly Ange thinks Jamesy got to be able to play on the left too. No sense punting him for the sake of it. He's core Celtic.

I think it's a good decision and I'm glad he will likely finish his career with us now. A one club man.
I think it will be on reduced terms as it's a three year deal for a thirty year old, and I don't think he will be an automatic start anymore. However his vast experience, and he still has quality, will mean he will be an important squad player.
Ange obviously still wants him around, and don't forget he's been injured this season a fair bit, I think a fit Forrest is still an asset.
