Scott Sinclair has admitted that Celtic have not been playing their best in the past few games but believes the international break gives them a great opportunity to regroup and finish the season unbeaten.
A draw against Rangers in the Old Firm derby was only the second time the Bhoys have failed to win a domestic match this season.
They did return to winning ways the week after despite it being a nerve-racking 2-1 victory over Dundee.
Sinclair believes that the international break is vital for his side’s chances of going the entire Scottish season unbeaten as they look to secure a domestic treble.
The 27-year-old has been a key attacker in Brendan Rodgers’ plans this year, smashing 18 goals in 39 appearances in all competitions in his debut season at the Glasgow club.
“We were not at our best in the last few games – the draw against Rangers and then the win at Dundee,” said Sinclair, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“We’ve done so well this season and the expectation is so high, people expect us to win 3-0 every week.
“Football is not like that but now we have a break to refresh and go again.”
Following the less than impressive win at Dens Park on Sunday, Rodgers has two weeks to let his side get themselves up for a visit to Hearts on April 2.
The trip to Edinburgh is the first of three games in a six day period which also includes home clashes with Partick Thistle and Kilmarnock.
Sinclair, formerly of Aston Villa and Chelsea, is the second highest goalscorer in the Scottish Premiership this season with 15 goals in the league.
Only his Hoops teammate Moussa Dembele has found the back of the net on more occasions during the campaign.
