Some Celtic fans don’t like the way winger Scott Sinclair has been treated this season, as he’s been reduced to a bit-part role under Neil Lennon.
The winger has seen his influence on the side drop year-on-year since arriving at Parkhead in 2016, yet still played a significant part in the last campaign. Despite it being his quietest season in green and white, the ex-Swansea man scored 17 times in his 55 appearances last year.
That looked as if it would be his last season at Parkhead, with Preston and Sheffield United linked to his services this summer. Yet, Lennon failed to get rid of him before the English window closed last week and it would appear he’ll still be a Celtic player until at least January.
And plenty of fans believe if he’s going to stick around then he should get a second chance after he was left out of the crunch tie against Cluj.
Many see him as a better player than his competition, Lewis Morgan, and think he can still do a job for their club. Take a look at some of the best Twitter verdicts down below…
Scott Sinclair has been treated disgracefully by Celtic

Spot on. If lennon’s hand is being forced by lawwell over this it shows he isn’t the man for the job. Sinclair has been an outstanding player for us over 3 years. Even when not on top form he still delivers the goals

The majority of Celtic fans are clueless and will focus on 1 negative ignoring 10 positives about a player. Sinclair vital part of the 10 if it happens…

From the minute he was picked to play for the u21s in preseason the writing has been on the wall. All the players know Lennons character now.

Disgusting how he’s being treated why renew his contract if we’re going to treat him like this offer him half his wage to let him go find a club best for both parties for the future ☘️☘️

Can’t get my head around why Sinclair isn’t playing in front of Morgan. There must be a clause that triggers a big payment based on number of appearances…..
