Much-criticised award winner needs to be key figure in second-half of Celtic season

Scott Sinclair played a major role in Celtic’s first game back after their winter break, setting up the first and scoring the second goal in the 5-0 win over Brechin City.
This is the sort of game he would be expected to dominate though, and a lot of fans will be looking closely at his performance against Partick Thistle on Tuesday to see if the player is back in-form or not.
Despite scoring 16 goals so far this season, the Englishman has been heavily criticised by supporters for some performances in the first-half of the season.
The reigning Scottish player of the year was pilloried by some supporters for his performance in the goal less draw against Rangers prior to the winter break, after missing a great chance in the first-half of the game.
When he’s on his game Sinclair is arguably a league above any player in Scotland, and he proved that with his 25 goals and multiple awards last season.
Despite the stats looking better so far this season, the performances in some of the bigger games have been lacking.
All eyes will be on Sinclair at Firhill where both the supporters and Brendan Rodgers will be hoping that he is a key figure in another Hoops victory, the team certainly needs him to be.
