Scott Sinclair has revealed that determination is the secret to his superb goalscoring form for Celtic this season.

The 27-year-old attacker has scored nine goals in 17 league and cup encounters, after moving to Glasgow from Villa in the summer for £3.5million.

Posting on his personal Instagram account, Sinclair revealed that his persistence and desire to find the back of the net has helped him to hit the ground running at Celtic Park.

When the first one doesn't go in, make sure the second one does! Great 3 points yesterday, onto the next #Celticfc

The former Swansea star scored on Wednesday night against Ross County, as Brendan Rodgers’s side went seven points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership with a 4-0 win.

Sinclair has revitalised his career in Glasgow, after a poor stay with Manchester City. Spells with West Brom and Aston Villa followed, but he failed to prevent the latter from being relegated to the Championship.

Sinclair, who was rested on Wednesday night before being brought on to secure the three points against Ross County, is likely to be brought back into Rodgers’ side to face Aberdeen on Saturday.

Three points could see the Hoops go 10 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership, with Aberdeen currently sitting in second.

In other Celtic news, this is the best possible starting 11 to face Aberdeen on Saturday.
