Celtic fans react to reports Scott Sinclair is set for Preston transfer

Oh Scotty Sinclair.

Following three and a half years of glowing service at Celtic, it appears Sinclair’s wonderful stint at the club is reaching its conclusion.

According to a recent report from the Daily Record, Sinclair has left Celtic’s training camp in Dubai in order to hold talks with Preston North End boss Alex Neil regarding a potential January move.

Stoke are also rumoured to be interested but Preston have already made an official approach to Peter Lawwell.

The 30-year-old winger has found himself firmly on the periphery of the first team this season, playing just 17 minutes of competitive action in the Scottish Premiership and regularly finding himself omitted from the matchday squad entirely.

Given his lack of involvement so far, it’s absolutely no surprise that interest is beginning to emerge and it seems a mid-season transfer is in the best interests of all parties concerned at this stage.

In response to the latest report, plenty of the Hoops faithful offered Sinclair their best wishes on his new challenge.

Two fans, meanwhile, alluded to his lack of involvement.

One suggested the club are burning money by continuing to pay a player who is rarely involved, while another expressed sympathy to Sinclair over the manner in which he has been frozen out under Lennon this season.

This supporter took that conversation a step further by suggesting Sinclair would have been a superior option to Lewis Morgan in the centre-forward position.

Finally, one fan simply reminisced over his debut season for the club and it’s easy to see why.

Will Sinclair thrive at Preston?

Yes - he's magic

Yes - he's magic

No - he's past it

No - he's past it

The former Manchester City winger immediately became a Paradise hero by scoring 21 goals and providing eight assists in just 35 league appearances. And so the chant was born.
