We reported on Chris Sutton’s comments surrounding Scott Sinclair’s current Celtic situation today and it would appear there are a lot of angry fans at the way Sinclair has been treated to this point.
Scott has been a pivotal part of Celtic’s success over the past three years but his form had been lacking and Neil Lennon was quite within his rights to hook the midfielder.
However, I think some fans are upset the player has left the picture altogether without an explanation. Lewis Morgan has been preferred to Scotty on the bench with some wondering why Sinclair and his experience would not get a slot.
Our Facebook followers were quick to let us know their thoughts and it all boiled down to showing the player ‘respect. I don’t think for a second Neil Lennon is showing the Englishman disrespect on a personal level but professionally he’s not taking into account anything the player has done up until the point he returned to the club.
Players often become superstars when they aren’t allowed to kick a ball, maybe that’s what’s happening here.
Personally, this season, I’ve been surprised Sinclair couldn’t get into most matchday squads – even the Dunfermline game at home!
Here’s what some of our followers had to say.
Sinclair has less than a year left on his current Celtic deal and it looks like a January exit is looming.
