Celtic youngster James Forrest is looking forward to playing more for the club after his dream debut against Motherwell.
The 18-year-old was given the final nine minutes of the Bhoys' 4-0 win over Well last weekend and capped his display with a goal at Parkhead.
The young midfielder did not play in their midweek success over Rangers, but admits he is still 'buzzing' over his SPL debut.
The goal capped a whirlwind week for Forrest after he helped the club secure an Under-19 League and Scottish Youth Cup double for Celtic.
"I'm still buzzing," said Forrest, who replaced Aiden McGeady for the final nine minutes of the Motherwell game.
"I was delighted to score, obviously, but I was delighted first of all just to get on - the goal topped it all off.
"It's been a bit crazy - the week's all just blurred together. But I think scoring the goal on Saturday was my highlight.
"Scoring on your debut at Celtic Park... you won't get a better feeling than that."
Forrest, who has been at Celtic since the age of nine, added in Celtic View: "My dad was at the game and he was obviously delighted as well.
"I also had loads of texts after the game from friends and old coaches all saying, 'Well done'.
"Now I want to get more of it."
