Harry Redknapp has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are tracking Celtic winger James Forrest, but insists the club are yet to make a bid for the youngster.

The 20-year-old winger, who has already earned a handful of caps for Scotland at senior level, has been earning rave reviews at Park Head this season, building on an impressive campaign for Neil Lennon's side last term.

It's led to interest in the player south of the border, and Redknapp has no problem admitting he'd sent members of his scouting team to track Forrest's progress in Glasgow.

"He's a good player. We've not made any bids. If we did I would speak to Neil Lennon. He's a player we have watched but he belongs to Celtic," he told The Mail on Sunday.

"At the moment we're not in the market to really do anything. We're looking at a few options but nothing definite."

Forrest is well aware of the interest being shown in his services, but insists he's focused on the Hoops challenge for another SPL title this term.

Lennon's side are now four points clear of Rangers at the top of the table following Saturday's 2-0 win over St. Mirren, with Forrest returning to the side from injury and scoring the opener in the win before their great rivals slipped-up against Aberdeen at Ibrox.

"It is obviously good to hear, but it doesn't bother me," the youngster told BBC Scotland.

"The main thing is I want to keep playing well with Celtic. As long as I'm doing well and the team's doing well, I am happy. We want to win the league and we want to win the two cups as well and that's what I'm thinking about."
