Scott Sinclair sent a Twitter message to fans following Celtic’s 7-0 loss at the hands of Barcelona on Tuesday evening.

The La Liga giants ran out emphatic winners at Camp Nou following a hat-trick from Lionel Messi, as well as a Luis Suarez double and goals from Andres Iniesta and Neymar.

Winger Sinclair started the match and played the full 90 minutes on the left of midfield, as his team were torn apart.

The 27-year-old took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon and posted on his personal account that it was a disappointing result, but that the side must pick themselves up following the humiliation.

Sinclair joined Celtic from Championship side Aston Villa during the summer, agreeing a four-year contract at the Scottish giants.

He has impressed all with his start to life in Scotland, scoring five goals in his first eight appearances for the club.

Celtic have also started well in the new campaign in the Scottish Premiership taking 12 points from their first four games, but the heavy loss in Europe will have put a dent in their start.

As well as Barcelona, they have been drawn in a group against Manchester City and Borussia Monchengladbach.

They face Inverness in the Premiership on Sunday and they will be keen to eradicate any lasting effects of Tuesday’s defeat.
