John Hartson delivers verdict on whether attacker will leave Celtic
By Dominic Toner
John Hartson does not believe Celtic ace Scott Sinclair will want to leave the newly crowned Scottish champions in the summer if a bid comes in for him.
The 28-year-old attacker has played a major role in the club’s league title success this season, which was confirmed with a 5-0 victory over Hearts on Sunday.
The Englishman struck a hat-trick in the win and has been a vital component of Brendan Rodgers’ side this campaign.
He completed a move to Celtic Park after difficult spells with the likes of Aston Villa and Manchester City in the past.
However, he has been able to recapture his best form with the Bhoys and has got his career back on track.

Ex-Celtic striker Hartson feels that Sinclair will certainly look to stay with the club after discovering the player he used to be.
“I really hope Celtic would be able to keep any suitors at bay if a big money offer came in,’ Hartson wrote in the Scottish Sun. “I can’t see Sinclair agitating for a move the way some players can these days.
“He’s made his money, his move to Manchester City seeing his wages go through the roof. He’s now back to the player I watched on a regular basis at Swansea.”
Sinclair has been an ever-present in Rodgers’ starting line-up this campaign and has made 40 appearances across all competitions.
The left winger has scored a remarkable 21 goals and chipped in with 10 assists too.
Celtic’s attacking play has been a huge part of their success, with the likes of Sinclair, Moussa Dembele and Leigh Griffiths all chipping in with tons of goals this season.
Sinclair is now back to tormenting defenders on the wing and could even be on the cusp of an England call-up if he continues to perform to such high standards in the Scottish Premiership.
