Scott Sinclair has dramatically turned his season around in the last few months. At one stage it looked like he was going to lose his place in the Hoops first team.

Now he is once again a first name on the team sheet.

Sinclair was Brendan Rodgers’ first big signing for the Hoops, from Aston Villa in August 2016. His first season was sensational, as his 25 goals helped the Hoops to a domestic treble.

His second season might not have been as consistently impressive. But his was still top scorer with 18 goals and won another domestic treble.

This season at first looked to be a different story. Sinclair seemed to lose all his confidence, scoring only three times in his first fifteen league appearances.

One man who never lost faith in Sinclair was his manager. He kept Sinclair in the side and has been rewarded with a series of great performances.

 

His hat-trick in the 4-3 Boxing Day win over Aberdeen showed that he was back to his best.

Sinclair recently followed this up with another hat-trick in the 5-0 win over St Johnstone. He now has 16 goals for the season.

Interestingly, Sinclair’s contract runs out at the end of next season. You would hope that discussions are taking place that would lead to a new deal being signed.

Sinclair is too important a player to be in danger of leaving the club for nothing at the end of next season. His record of 59 goals in his time at the club is hugely impressive, especially for a winger.

Therefore, it is vital that a deal is agreed sooner rather than later. Sinclair has certainly done enough to earn a new deal at Celtic Park.
