Former West Ham star Trevor Sinclair has told Jim White live on talkSPORT that he would have ‘loved’ to join Celtic during his playing career.
The Lowdown: Sinclair’s final years…
However, it seems as if his last year as a player could have been with Celtic, with Sinclair opening up to White on talkSPORT on Wednesday.
The Latest: Sinclair’s comments
Sinclair was wearing a Celtic shirt on talkSPORT, revealing it was one he kept after a pre-season game against the Hoops with West Ham.
He admitted that he will be wearing it for the Glasgow Derby against Rangers in January, comments that left White stunned: ‘Celtic fans, there he is,’ the presenter joked.
Sinclair then went on to add that a ‘little regret’ of his playing career was not being able to turn out for Celtic, as his father was from Glasgow and a massive Hoops fan.
He believes if social media was available back then, he could have informed the Bhoys over his wishes to make the move to Scotland.
The Verdict: What could have been…
Celtic enjoyed a successful 2007/08 campaign under Gordon Strachan, winning the Scottish Premiership and reaching the last 16 of the Champions League.
However, the majority of Strachan’s wingers at the time were fairly young, so Sinclair could have been a shrewd addition who may have helped a young Aiden McGeady during his early years.
Sinclair would’ve been 34 years of age at the time in 2007 and he only contributed to three goals in 25 games with Cardiff, so perhaps it wasn’t the end of the world that a move north failed to materialise, but his experience and quality may well have elevated the Hoops that bit further in their European campaign.
