What a difference a day makes.
We find ourselves increasingly judging players by not how they feel themselves, but how they are perceived.
For the last month, Scott Sinclair has been perceived as a player who is underperforming and who looked like he wanted to be anywhere else other than Glasgow.
However, on Friday, that argument was torn apart by the player himself when he not only declared he wants to be at Celtic for the rest of this season but the player is so impassioned and dedicated to the cause he wants to be here to try and make history.
Celtic fans won’t suffer fools and they can see right through players who want to be elsewhere other than Celtic Park, but there is a sincerity to Scott Sinclair that most fans will be able to see and appreciate.
The passion and sentiment behind these words are music to the ears of Celtic fans who love to see players who were not brought up on Celtic, but buy into the club in a big way and that’s what Scott seems to have done.
His quote may as well have been from the Wolf is Wall Street because it reads as – ‘I’m not F****** leaving’!
The midfielder might not be on the best form of his Celtic career but he is showing a desire to push on and become not just another Celtic player but a person who is etched into the history books of the club by helping ten in a row happen.
It’s refreshing to see, and it’s testament to the players we have at the club who have helped immerse Scotty in everything Celtic that he doesn’t want to be anywhere else.
When the Englishman is on form he is on another level. It’s no wonder that Celtic’s goals and creativity as a whole have dipped with Scotty’s downturn in form.
Hopefully, he can pick things up and be the catalyst for a double treble in the coming months!
