Celtic skipper Callum McGregor believes title winning team mate James Forrest could provide the answer to Scotland’s right back riddle at this summer’s Euros.Forrest is being hotly tipped to win an international recall in time to make the plane to Germany as manager Steve Clarke prepares to name a 26 man strong tournament squad.
