Celtic fans have taken to social media to react to the news that Scott Sinclair has been dropped for Celtic’s match against Motherwell tonight.

Most are of the opinion that he has been dropped because of his recent run of poor form, and not because of the controversial penalty he won in the Betfred Cup Final on Sunday.

Sinclair has scored 12 goals this season, but at times he has looked a shadow of the player who was deservedly named Scottish Player of the Year last season.

He has been particularly poor in most of Celtic’s Champions League games this season, with the win in Anderlecht the only game he has shone in.

Sinclair has been replaced by Patrick Roberts, with Celtic’s only other change from Sunday Leigh Griffiths replacing the injured Moussa Dembele up-front.

Here are some of the best reactions to the team news:

Celtic go into tonight’s match only three points ahead of Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, although they do have a game in hand.

After tonight’s game Celtic take on Motherwell again, and for the third time in a week, at Celtic Park on Saturday afternoon.
