There is no denying Scott Sinclair hasn’t been at his scintillating best for Celtic this season. The player has looked jaded at times and no wonder, Celtic have played a massive amount of games compared to their Scottish counterparts.
Some criticism towards the Englishman was warranted and others were over the top, however, while the player has taken a downturn in performance his output has not suffered greatly.
The attacking midfielder leads the SPFL table as top goalscorer – while Morelos and Moult are both on eight goals with Scotty, his 3 assists puts him head and shoulders above the rest.
In the league, Sinclair is averaging a goal every 142 minutes, with Callum McGregor and Leigh Griffiths his closest Celtic competition who are both on five goals – with Leigh playing significantly less game time.
When Sinclair set up and scored again last night there was a common theme that he had arrived back to last seasons form against Accies. There are some fans who believe he never was off form and are lambasting anyone for criticising him in the first place – proclaiming ‘they never lost faith’ – if that’s the case then they’re not being completely truthful or they didn’t watch him last season close enough.
There is a direct correlation between Scott Sinclair’s dip and form and Celtic’s – so much went through the dynamic midfielder last season. The Accies game showed how influential he can be when he can get properly going.
