In-form attacker Scott Sinclair was guilty of wasting a number of chances against Borussia Monchengladbach on Wednesday night – and Celtic fans were disappointed on Twitter.
The former Aston Villa and Manchester City star was given the best chance to break the deadlock in the first half, after he was played in with a superb ball from Australia international Tom Rogic.
However, Sinclair blazed his effort from 10 yards and the Hoops went on to lose 2-0 to their Group C rivals at Parkhead.
Sinclair, who represented Great Britain at the 2012 Olympics, was then handed a superb chance in the second half to find the net from eight yards out but mistimed his header.
Celtic fans were gutted that Sinclair failed to score, with both of the former Chelsea youth player’s chances coming with the score still at 0-0.

Bitton and Sinclair have been poor tonight. First time Sinclair hasn't hit the heights in a Celtic jersey.

I guess regardless Rogic will be off after his usual 60 minutes.
Scott Sinclair's quietest game since he arrived.

The decision making there from Scott Sinclair is absolutely terrible. He has to square that for Dembele. Very wasteful on hard night so far.

Sinclair, 27, completed a move to Brendan Rodgers’ side in the summer from Championship team Aston Villa for around £3.5million.
He has impressed for the Hoops since joining with eight goals and three assists in his first 15 matches for the club.
Celtic now face a huge task to qualify for the knockout stages, as they sit in last position behind Manchester City, Barcelona and Gladbach.
