Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has shown that he backs much-criticised Scott Sinclair to be a main player for the Hoops by selecting the Englishman to start against Ross County.
The 29-year-old attacker, who has been underfire from Hoops fans for some poor performances in the last few months, returns to the Hoops starting line-up in a team which was announced on the club’s official Twitter account a short time ago.

The Hoops go into the match as clear favourites to defeat the side at the bottom of the Scottish Premiership table, and Rodgers obviously believes that Sinclair – who is still the Hoops’ top scorer with 17 goals this season – will thrive in the game.
The other intriguing aspect to the Hoops side is the return of Leigh Griffiths to the squad for the first-time in two months, as he takes a place on the subs’ bench.
Interestingly, after playing two men up-front in the match against Motherwell, the Hoops boss has reverted to one man up-front – Moussa Dembele – with Odsonne Edouard not even on the bench.
The Hoops go into the match with a clear lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, and a win over Ross County will take them one step closer to a seventh consecutive league title.
