Scott Sinclair delivers Celtic verdict ahead of Champions League
By Dominic Toner
Scott Sinclair believes that Celtic must win in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
The Bhoys face Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany for the group stage match and they will be looking for revenge after the 2-0 defeat at Celtic Park.
The Scottish champions are currently stuck at the bottom of the group behind Borussia, Manchester City and Barcelona, and are in danger of being eliminated from Europe.
Brendan Rodgers’ side may have aspirations of finishing third in the group and dropping down into the Europa League, but a defeat on Tuesday night could seriously dent their hopes.
Celtic attacker Sinclair claims it is crucial that the club earn three points against Borussia if they want to stay in the competition.

“100 per cent. We need to win. For us to go further and make sure we progress we have to win,” Sinclair said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

Celtic signed Sinclair in the summer transfer window for £3million and he left Aston Villa to experience his first taste of Scottish football.
The 27-year-old has endured a difficult career to date and failed to settle at clubs such as Manchester City, Aston Villa and Chelsea as a youngster.
He did enjoy a prolific spell with Swansea and the winger has begun to recreate his best form once again in Scotland.
Sinclair has started very strongly at Celtic Park, scoring nine goals and supplying three assists in his first 18 games.
