'Worst miss of all time' - Celtic fans shocked by attacker blunder in win v Hibernian
Celtic fans have been reacting on social media to Scott Sinclair’s terrible miss against Hibernian, in a game which the Hoops won 1-0 on Saturday at Parkhead.
After a Leigh Griffiths free-kick had been saved by goalkeeper Ofir Marciano, Sinclair somehow managed to put the rebound against the bar when it seemed far easier to score.
Here are some of the reactions to the former Man City attacker’s blunder:
Sinclair on the rebound is probably the biggest sitter I've seen

As for the game itself, both sides created chances, with Griffiths missing a good chance, scuffing a shot wide of goal, before Craig Gordon had to deny both Brandon Barker and Martin Boyle as Hibernian almost took the lead.
Griffiths opened the scoring for the Hoops in the 27th minute, taking advantage of a Paul Hanlon error to make it 1-0. He didn’t celebrate against his former side, after scoring his second goal in goal times.
Griffiths then suffered another calf injury and was replaced in the first-half by Moussa Dembele.
The Hoops were forced into another change at half-time, Dorus de Vries replacing the injured Craig Gordon.
Hibernian had a good spell in the second-half but found it difficult to create chances as the game went into a bit of a lull, before John McGinn forced de Vries into a save.
Despite the pressure the Hoops held on for the win, as they stayed 11 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
