Celtic attacker Scott Sinclair been struggling with his form in recent months, but one moment of magic against Hamilton has secured his place in the Hoops’ starting line-up in the upcoming Old Firm Scottish Cup semi-final.

With the game tied at 1-1, Sinclair’s pinpoint cross was headed home by Leigh Griffiths to secure the three points for the Hoops.

The role played in the winning goal seemed to give Sinclair confidence for the rest of the game, as he came close with a header that was touched around the post, then was unlucky with an acrobatic volley which went just over the bar.

Manager Brendan Rodgers will have been impressed with Sinclair’s performance in the second-half, for it was more reminiscent of the player which dominated the league last season and was deservedly named player of the year.

It is worth remembering that despite his recent poor run of form, Sinclair is still the Hoops’ top scorer with 18 goals, and he has been a mainstay for the side this season with 48 appearances, which shows that he still retains the faith of the manager.

Rodgers will trust that Sinclair will be up for the biggest game the Hoops have left this season, and that on his day he is by far the best player in the Scottish Premiership, which is why he will start the semi-final.
