Scott Sinclair reveals what Celtic are desperate to do ahead of Rangers cup clash
By Danny Wright
Scott Sinclair has revealed that every Celtic player is fighting to get themselves up to full fitness ahead of their Scottish Cup semi-final clash with Rangers.
The two Old Firm rivals meet later this month in what will no doubt be a fiery encounter between two heavyweights of Scottish football.
Brendan Rodgers has had his side boosted by the return of Tom Rogic in the last week after a long spell on the sidelines and Sinclair is glad to see a full squad available for selection.
“It’s great that everyone is back because it gives the manager a choice,” said Sinclair, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“We will all work 100 per cent and the manager has to choose a team and more often than not we do the business.

“Everyone is trying to get back 100 per cent for the Rangers game. Even if you were out with a hamstring injury then you’d be wanting back! Hopefully everyone can stay fit for that game.”
Celtic have already met Rangers on four occasions this season winning all but the most recent clash in which they drew 1-1.
Sinclair scored in each of the league wins against the Light Blues and has a total of 23 goals in all competitions in his debut campaign for the Bhoys, 20 of which came in the league.
The 28-year-old is the Scottish Premiership’s leading goal scorer with teammate Moussa Dembele his nearest rival with 17.
Rangers are the penultimate hurdle in Celtic’s dreams of securing the treble this season.
The Scottish League Cup and Premiership are already in the bag but Gers can cause a monumental upset if they can get the better of the Hoops at Hampden Park.
