Image for Neil Lennon reveals long term injury absence

James Forrest looks like being out of action until the new year.

The winger hasn’t played since being injured away to Riga on September 24 and has now undergone surgery on his ankle problem.

Alongside Callum McGregor and Scott Brown Forrest has been the biggest contributor to the current run of success but now looks unlikely to be available for the Scottish Cup Final against Hearts on December 20.

Ryan Christie and Jeremie Frimpong have filled in for Forrest on the right, although both players have their strengths neither brings the same contribution of balance to the side combined with goals and assists.

Forrest played on through his stress fracture until being replaced by Frimpong against Riga, it seems that rest has been unable to resolve the problem.

Chris Jullien and Mikey Johnston are also on the injured list leaving Neil Lennon light on wide options with his side appearing to be more comfortable playing in a 4-2-3-1 formation.
