Celtic’s shirt sponsors, Dafabet, made sure that fans were quids in with a special James Forrest bet this afternoon.
Earlier today the winger was priced at a miserable 7/2 but in a bid to drum up business those odds were eased out to a much more appealing 9/1.
Fans that decided to invest were quickly rewarded when Forrest opened the scoring in the 15th minute.

Proving that his opener was no fluke the winger scored another three before half time as Celtic turned in their best performance of the season.
Danny Swanson was shown a red card early in the second half for a brutal swipe at Forrest but fortunately he recovered as Celtic went on to enjoy a 6-0 victory with Odsonne Edouard and Callum McGregor the other scorers.
Celtic now have a 13 day break before they face Hibs- punters will be keeping an eye on which player Dafabet will be offering a price boost on to open the scoring.
