Former Celtic star Sinclair has hailed the experience he had during his time at Celtic over the last three years.

Sinclair recently left the Parkhead-based side to join Preston North End in the Championship. Recently talking to The Scottish Sun about his time at Celtic, he fondly looked back on his time at Parkhead, saying that it was a ‘proud’ time for the Englishman.

Does Sinclair go down as a Celtic legend?

Absolutely, he was immense

Absolutely, he was immense

If only he had played more

If only he had played more

He said: “Winning the treble-treble with the team collectively was really special. There’ no better thing to do than make history for the club.

“I had an amazing three-and-a-half years at Celtic, winning everything up there and getting great support from the fans. That will always be such a proud time.”

Out of favour at Parkhead

Before leaving Celtic in January, Sinclair had fallen out of favour at Parkhead. He made only seven appearances in all competitions for the club during that time, scoring twice. One goal came in the Champions League qualifying stages, with one coming in the League Cup for the club. In the Premiership, he made only two appearances for the club, playing 17 minutes.

Last season saw him be more of a regular at the club. He made 55 appearances in all competitions for the club, scoring 17 times and racking up six assists. He contributed to 12 goals in 28 Premiership appearances for the side.

His Hoops career saw Sinclair maintain an impressive record against fierce rivals Rangers. He played against them nine times in total. He scored against them four times, getting two assists – with that just one reason why Sinclair became an icon at Parkhead.

Sinclair also grabbed a famous hat-trick against Aberdeen last season, helping the side win 4-3. He had also grabbed an impressive hat-trick for the side in a Scottish Cup game against St. Johnstone, helping the side win 5-0.

TIF Tactics

Sinclair’s goalscoring numbers and assists are very impressive. He also won the Player of the Season in his debut campaign, winning the Premiership, Scottish Cup and League Cup three times each. His period at the club was certainly one to be ‘proud’ of.
