Scotland winger James Forrest ruled out of Team GB
Wednesday 23 May 2012
The Celtic manager, Neil Lennon, has told the Team GB coach, Stuart Pearce, that James Forrest will not be available for the Olympics.
The Scotland winger, who missed the last two months of the season with a calf injury, has said he would rather play for Celtic in the Champions League qualifiers.
Lennon said he did not expect to lose players. "Certainly not the British players, we've spoken with Stuart on that," he said. "James Forrest will not be going because he's been injured.
"As regards the rest of the players, we'll speak to the other federations and, hopefully, there will be some sort of resolution."
