Scott Sinclair sent a clear message to Neil Lennon last night after netting in Celtic’s 5-0 thrashing of Partick Thistle in the Scottish League Cup Quarter-Finals. He scored the last of the night after coming on as a substitute and his manager said he looked ‘very strong’.
The Englishman’s celebration seemed like a release of frustration after the torrid time he’s had since Lennon took over from Brendan Rodgers in February. He’s made just one Scottish Premiership appearance this season and that was for just 11 minutes, so he’s got to take any opportunity he gets to become part of the manager’s plans.
Despite the lack of game time, he’s still a fan favourite considering the role he played in Rodgers’ record-breaking seasons at the club, and that’s no surprise. When their official Twitter account posted a photo of Sinclair’s goal celebration after the game, fans made their love for Sinclair clear.

Really pleased for him. As pleased as Scotty looks too. 👍🍀

Has so much to offer. Creates and scores goals and always puts a shift in. Hope this keeps him in the matchday squad for Saturday. Far too much quality to be watching from the stands. Good man Scotty made up for you🍀

You show them what we’re missing when you’re on the bench.

Now we just need to start giving the poor bhoy a chance because he’s class

Brilliant to see, it’s a joke the way Lennon is treating him. Easily 15+ goals a season
