Twitter reacts to memorable day for new Celtic signing
By Tom Blackburn
Scott Sinclair scored the winner on his Celtic debut hours after being unveiled as the club’s new signing – and Twitter went wild for the winger.
The Bhoys won the tie against Hearts 2-1, as they began their Scottish Premiership defence with three points.
The winger came off the bench in the 61st minute with the score at 1-1, and in the 81st minute he scored to send Celtic fans home jubilant.

This win is surely a good omen for the season, after their Glasgow rivals drew to Hamilton yesterday, and fans quickly saluted Sinclair and the rest of the Celtic side.
Here are a selection of their messages:

I didn’t even know Sinclair had signed before he came on. Not a bad start for him and the Lhads.
