Celtic starlet James Forrest has reiterated his interest in playing for Team GB in this summer's London 2012 Olympics.
The Scotland winger, along with Hoops team-mates Scott Brown and Adam Matthews, were asked by GB coach Stuart Pearce if they would be open to selection for his final squad.
However, Forrest knows his availability might be decided by Celtic if the games clash with their probable UEFA Champions League qualifiers.
Speaking ahead of Celtic's weekend clash with St Mirren, the talented 20-year-old insists there is plenty of time to decide his involvement.
"It has not been decided to be fair, it will be another couple of months," he said on possible involvement. "But I am still open to the idea.
"It is obviously up to the club as well, it depends on whether they have fixtures in July.
"The club have said that if I want to play in it then they said I can but if we have fixtures then obviously they won't let us go.
"There is still a long way to go until then."
