Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to slam Scott Sinclair for his dive to win a penalty against Motherwell in Sunday’s Scottish League Cup final win over Motherwell.

Sinclair took a dramatic tumble in the second-half of the 2-0 win over the Steelmen at Hampden despite there being minimal contact from Cedric Kipre who was subsequently sent off by referee Craig Thompson.

Goals from James Forrest and Moussa Dembele secured a fourth consecutive trophy for the Hoops in a game they never really looked like losing.

With the Hoops 1-0 up through Forrest’s strike, Sinclair went down in the area and fans weren’t impressed when Sinclair hit the deck like he had been pole-axed – with one saying they were “embarrassed” by his antics.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

The Celtic winger has been struggling for form recently and the penalty controversy was his only notable contribution as the cup final completely passed the former Man City and Chelsea youngster by.

Brendan Rodgers axed the winger from his starting XI to face Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League in midweek and could find himself with an enforced spell on the sidelines if the Scottish FA’s compliance officer decides to take a look at the incident again.

In other Celtic news, ex-Hoops manager Neil Lennon has taken a brutal swipe at Rangers for their manager search.
