25-goal forward gives emphatic verdict on future, Celtic fans will be delighted
By Will Butcher
Scott Sinclair has revealed he wants to remain in Glasgow with Celtic despite plenty of reported interest from down south in England.
The Daily Express claim Sinclair is on the radar of a number of Premier League clubs ahead of the summer window, after he fired 25 goals in his first season under Brendan Rodgers.
Speaking to the Express, Sinclair revealed that he is happy with the Glasgow giants after moves to Man City and Aston Villa proved to be backwards steps in Sinclair’s career.
“I’m in no rush to leave here. I’ve had all these moves before,” Sinclair said.
“I moved to City and it didn’t work out, I went to Villa and got relegated, and now I’m enjoying playing every week, scoring goals, back to my best. Why would I want to ruin that?

“All I’m looking at is enjoying every single moment, improving my game and coming back stronger next season.”
Sinclair, 27, has shone in Scotland since his summer move from Aston Villa, and has been announced as the Scottish PFA player of the year for his sublime form this season.
As well as scoring 25 goals under Rodgers, with whom he has worked with at Chelsea and Swansea, Sinclair has also provided 11 assists for the Scottish champions.
The former England youth international has more than three years remaining on his contract with the Bhoys, and now looks set to remain with the Hoops.
Sinclair is set to start against Aberdeen on Friday night as the Hoops look to continue their unbeaten league form and beat the Scottish Premiership points record of 103 set by Martin O’Neill’s Celtic in 2001-02.
