Former Rangers defender Alan Hutton has suggested to Football Insider that Celtic winger James Forrest would flourish at Leicester City.

Hutton, who is now a free agent following his departure from Aston Villa at the end of last season, has suggested that Forrest is good enough to play in the Premier League.

The former Rangers and Tottenham Hotspur right-back believes that the 28-year-old cold flourish playing under former Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers at Leicester.

Hutton told Football Insider about Forrest: “He seems to have been around forever – he’s still only young. Meeting up in the Scotland squad and things, he’s a really nice guy, down-to-earth. He’s one that’s got everything.

“I just see him maybe flourishing at a team like Leicester or maybe one of these type of teams – obviously a manager that knows him well. I really think he’s got everything that it takes to make it down in the big league.”

Premier League move?

Forrest is one of the best wingers in the Scottish Premiership, and the Scotland international has been on the books of Celtic his entire professional club football career so far.

There is no need for the 28-year-old to leave the Hoops, as he is playing for a massive club, featuring in Europe, and winning major trophies.

However, a move to the Premier League and join an ambitious club like Leicester could be very tempting for Forrest.

During his time at Celtic so far, Forrest has won the Scottish Premiership title eight times, the Scottish Cup five times, and the Scottish League Cup on four occasions.
