Scott Sinclair insists he is back to his best again at Celtic as the winger enjoys a prolonged run in the side.

Sinclair, a £3m signing from Aston Villa in 2016, lit the league alight in his debut season.

A quieter second season followed, and many questioned if Sinclair would be a force again at Celtic.

However, this season Sinclair has been showing signs of his former self, albeit a bit too inconsistently.

Last year, Sinclair found himself out of the starting XI as Celtic closed in a double treble.

This year, Sinclair has enjoyed a prolonged run in the side again, and insists he’s back to his best.

The winger told The Daily Record: ““I feel I’m in a good place now. I’m scoring, I’m creating and I’m back to being positive when I get the ball.

“I just have to build on that.”

Sinclair has started 2019 with a bang, scoring in all of Celtic’s three games so far this year.

He has seven goals in his last five games, including a hat-trick against Aberdeen on Boxing Day.

The winger believes the faith placed in him by Brendan Rodgers is key to his return to form.

Rodgers has given Sinclair his place back in the side, consistently since mid October. The ex-Villa man, who played under Rodgers at Swansea, insists he aims to replicate his first season form.

“It’s about getting back to that level (first season form), but I’m in a good place right now and I want to keep improving and scoring goals.”

Sinclair has notched 12 goals in 35 appearances so far this season.

The Talisman Returns

So much has been made about the supposed fall from grace Sinclair endured after a whirlwind first season.

It would be remiss to argue that he replicated his first season form, however he did finish last season as Celtic’s top goalscorer.

He’s been a talisman-like figure for the Hoops over the last two-and-a-half years. Now due to a prolonged run in the side, the Bhoys will look to him for inspiration again.
