Sinclair was recently talking to BBC Sport in a recent interview where he revealed that being relegated to the club’s bench this season was ‘hard to take’ for him. He also said that he had to ‘stay professional’ during that phase at Parkhead and it was a ‘tough’ time.
Was the club wrong to sell Sinclair?
Yes, he was too good to be sold
No, he deserved to leave
He became a one-trick pony; predictable and easily robbed imo. Good servant but time was defo up.

Bang on. Turned in to a zero-trick pony against some of the dross of the SPL.

Why not ? He was reserve level getting top wages

He fell below par, that’s why he was punted

100% agree he was rank rotten for 18 months. He became a five a side player too many fans looking through the green tinted specs.

Poor show. Felt bad for him but not any more.

@BBCMOTD Well said, pal. Too many Tims with short memories. Yes, will be fondly remembered, but club made right decision.

Sinclair recently joined Preston from the Hoops in January as he signed a two-and-a-half-year deal at Deepdale.
Before leaving Parkhead, Sinclair had made only seven appearances in all competitions this season, scoring only two goals and playing just twice in the Premiership, featuring for 17 minutes in the league.
What do we think?
The stats show how Sinclair’s numbers dipped from last season onwards. In the 2017/18 season, he contributed to 35 goals in 55 appearances for the club. But in the 2018/19 campaign, he had a say in just 23 goals in 55 games. That backs up the claim that Sinclair was possibly declining and Celtic perhaps did the right thing to move him on this January.
