Celtic fans bid farewell to hero Scott Sinclair

With numerous credible reports suggesting that Scott Sinclair is heading back to England today to discuss a move to Deepdale, Celtic fans have been bidding farewell to their hero.

Sinclair has been a massive part of Celtic’s dominance in recent seasons and according to many fans he has been unfairly treated as of late.

The 30-year-old was the only player to score in all competitions of the ‘treble treble’, when Celtic completed a third successive clean sweep of the domestic honours last season.

Signed by Brendan Rodgers for £3.5million in 2016, Sinclair is one of Celtic’s highest earners and with just six months remaining on his current deal, a move away from Celtic Park makes sense.

The links between Sinclair and Preston certainly aren’t fresh, with the Lancashire Post writing in July that Celtic had “knocked back” PNE’s loan enquiry for Sinclair. The Bhoys outlined a £2.5million asking price for their once prized possession.

This season, Neil Lennon has frozen Sinclair out of the side, claiming that competition for Sinclair’s place is rife. The winger clearly isn’t happy with the situation, but would have to be prepared to take a sizeable wage cut if he does move to PR1.

Questions still remain as to the ins and outs of a deal, but it would be an incredible coup for Preston who currently sit just four points off third place in the Championship.

Sinclair would finally fill the Callum Robinson void and could hopefully resolve Preston’s profligacy.

In his three year spell with the Bhoys, the experienced attacker has bagged 62 goals in 167 appearances and many Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to praise Sinclair for his goal-scoring exploits:


Clearly a much loved figure at Celtic, Sinclair would be a brilliant addition for promotion hopefuls Preston.
