By Dominic Toner

Celtic midfielder Scott Sinclair revealed his delight on Twitter after a dramatic win against Rangers.

Celtic booked their place in the Scottish League Cup final against Aberdeen, after overcoming their Old Firm rivals on Sunday.

Brendan Rodgers’ side were involved in a close affair against Rangers, but finally broke through the defence in the 87th minute to progress in the cup.

Forward Moussa Dembele scored a dramatic winner and flicked in a cross from team-mate Leigh Griffiths.

Sinclair played 90 minutes against Rangers and was denied a goal in the first-half, with goalkeeper Matt Gilks blocking his shot on target with his feet.

The winger delivered another strong performance for the Bhoys and has settled well since his summer arrival.

Sinclair expressed his delight with the late goal and hailed a fantastic “team performance” against Rangers.

“We left it late but we got the job done, great win and team performance, final here we come!” Sinclair wrote on his personal 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 Englishman has endured a difficult career to date and failed to settle at clubs such as Manchester City, Aston Villa and Chelsea as a youngster.

Sinclair, 27, did enjoy a prolific spell with Swansea and the winger has begun to recreate his best form once again in Scotland.

He has started very strongly at Celtic Park, scoring eight goals and supplying three assists in his first 16 games.
