Scott Sinclair: I can't put my finger on why Celtic manager Rodgers made this decision
By Harvey Byrne
Celtic star attacker Scott Sinclair has told that he he can’t put his finger on why manager Brendan Rodgers told players they had a bad training session two days before their Scottish Cup final.
The Hoops underwent a fantastic campaign domestically last season, claiming the league title unbeaten as well as winning both the Scottish Cup and Scottish League Cup.
However, the team may not have completed the treble with manager Rodgers telling after their 2-1 cup final win over Aberdeen in May that he cut training short on the Thursday before the match due to his players’ poor performance.
Now, Sinclair has told that he wasn’t sure why Rodgers made that decision and it just goes to show the high quality that he demands.
“Yeah, he sent us in early,” told Sinclair, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.

“He told us we’d had 208 training sessions during the season and had one bad one, which was two days before the Cup Final.
“I’m not too sure why it was a bad session, I can’t put my finger on it.
“It was just a little bit slack. It goes to show the high expectations of the manager.”
Sinclair joined Celtic last summer from Aston Villa alongside Rodgers after the two had worked together at Swansea.
The 28-year-old attacker has proven to be a huge success with the Hoops at his debut season at the club and has returned 25 goals and 11 assists in 50 appearances in all competitions.
He was also named the club’s Player of the Year and Player’s Player of the Year and he will now be hoping for similar success under Rodgers in the next campaign.
