Celtic and Scotland winger James Forrest has reiterated his interest in playing for Team GB in this summer's London Olympics - but is aware that his club's probable Champions League qualifiers could scupper his hopes.

Forrest, 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, Neil Lennon's side are likely to be involved in European qualifiers in July when the Olympic football competition is under way.

Forrest said: "It has not been decided to be fair, it will be another couple of months. But I am still open to the idea."
