Some Celtic fans are gutted to see Scott Sinclair on his way out of the club

Some Celtic supporters are not happy that attacker Scott Sinclair appears to be on the verge of leaving the club to join Preston North End.

As reported by STV, the winger has completed a medical and is set to become a part of Alex Neil’s squad, three-and-a-half-years after making the switch to Celtic Park.

Sinclair was an absolute sensation for a time at the Scottish Champions, most notably during our 2016/17 ‘Invincibles’ season.

During that campaign, the Englishman netted a superb 25 goals in all competitions, also registering 13 assists. He was a near-constant danger when in the team and terrorised defences up and down the country.

In recent seasons his star had begun to wane and by the time Neil Lennon into the club it had become clear he wasn’t operating to the same high standard that had made him such a fan favourite.

This season he has struggled for game time in Lennon’s side and with less than six months before his current contract expires, it makes perfect sense for him to exit the Hoops.

That hasn’t stopped some fans being upset with the news though, either just sad to say goodbye to him or even thinking that he could still do a job in Lennon’s starting eleven.

These supporters have taken to Twitter today to share their thoughts on it all…
