His brother James has won every League Cup going for the last few seasons at Celtic – but Alan Forrest is hoping to keep it in the family this year.

The Livingston winger is the only remaining sibling in the Forrest family left in this season’s League Cup, Livingston making the semi-finals after beating Ross County, who put Celtic out the competition.

Forrest himself has scored 10 goals this term as he adjusts to life as a Premiership player well. He’s now hoping to achieve a cup win just like his brother at Celtic has over the last few seasons.

“James has won it four in a row and then Celtic are out, as are Rangers,” said Forrest. “It’s still a competitive tournament. We know there’s no easy game but we’ve all got to believe that we can go all the way.

“The boys were in there watching the last five minutes and we saw Rangers equalise. We thought they would go on and win – but we couldn’t believe it when St Mirren scored the winner.

“It was a shock. But it’s got to be good for us. It’s anyone’s competition now. Everybody is buzzing and the semi-finals are really good for us. We have been working hard and everyone is pulling together.

“You are seeing that on the pitch. We are a good run and this is a great achievement.”
