Scott Sinclair scored the winner on his Celtic debut hours after being unveiled as the club’s new signing – and Twitter went wild for the winger.

The Bhoys won the tie against Hearts 2-1, as they began their Scottish Premiership defence with three points.

The winger came off the bench in the 61st minute with the score at 1-1, and in the 81st minute he scored to send Celtic fans home jubilant.

The Glasgow giants confirmed the signing of Sinclair on their official website on Sunday morning as the player joined on a four-year deal, much to the delight of supporters on Twitter.

The Hoops are hoping to win their sixth successive league title, but face stiff competition this year with Rangers returning.

This win is surely a good omen for the season, after their Glasgow rivals drew to Hamilton yesterday, and fans quickly saluted Sinclair and the rest of the Celtic side.

Here are a selection of their messages:
