Former Celtic winger Scott Sinclair spoke to the BBC’s Football Focus programme on Saturday regarding his exit from the club in the January window to join Preston North End.

The main takeaway was that Sinclair revealed that he had been training with the Celtic reserves.

“Scoring 60 goals in three seasons and before you know it you’re sometimes training with the reserves, with whichever reason that was. So that was hard to take, but I had to dig in and stay professional, which I did. But it was a very tough time for me in the last stages” Sinclair said, as quoted by the Match of the Day Twitter account.

Sinclair was a key part of the Celtic side which won the invincible treble in 2016-17, and was named as Scotland’s player of the year that season.

As part of the squad that helped the Hoops win the ‘treble treble’, he will always be remembered as a Celtic hero, and of the better players who wore the green and white jerseys in the 2010s.
