Celtic fans react on Twitter to Sinclair display against St Mirren

By Matt Farr

Scott Sinclair gave another impressive display as Celtic came from behind to secure a 4-1 victory over St Mirren in the Scottish Cup quarter-final on Sunday.

Player-of-the year contender Sinclair, 29, scored a superbly taken curling strike to double Celtic’s lead, before supplying Moussa Dembele with a simple finish for a third.

He continually threatened to do further damage to the St Mirren defence throughout the remainder of the game, and fans on Twitter were delighted with the impact he had on their comeback victory.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

He has been nothing short of a revelation since arriving at the club in the summer as one of Brendan Rodgers’ first signings, and fans have been continually impressed with his performances.

Harry Davis had handed St Mirren a shock lead on 13 minutes after converting John Sutton’s header, and the visitors almost doubled their lead early into the second half when Dembele sliced a clearance onto the crossbar.

The St Mirren resistance held firm until the 58th minute , when Patrick Roberts’ half time introduction inspired an impressive come back from the hosts.

Roberts’ superb delivery from the right hand side was met by the head of Lustig, who fired past goalkeeper Billy O’Brien.

Sinclair and Dembele added to Celtic’s tally, before Leigh Griffiths completed the rout with an effort from outside the box.
