Some Celtic fans are furious with the Europa League performance of Scott Sinclair, who did not take his chance to impress in Thursday night’s clash in Romania.
Celtic’s defeat to CFR Cluj means nothing in the long run, as Neil Lennon’s side were already qualified at the top of their group.
However, it was a great chance for the gaffer to see some of his fringe and youth players perform, and it’s fair to say very few of them grasped the opportunity.
Per Sofascore, the former player of the year won just one out of nine duels, surrendered possession 14 times, completed just 22 passes, took no shots and completed just one dribble.
It was a display that proved Lennon right in leaving the 30 year-old out in the cold for most of this season, as you can tell from the Twitter reactions down below…
That ladies and gentlemen is why Scott Sinclair can get nowhere near a place in the squad. Nothing to do with fall outs or anything, just an empty jersey.

Now we know why Scott Sinclair has been in hiding. He’s awful… was good his first season. But he’s like a man down now.. shame!!!
Need to move him on, apparently mcgeady being released and wants to come home. Give him that shirt!

Well this game well and truly resolves the issue of why Scott Sinclair isn’t getting near the team. Ntcham too sloppy again as well

And let’s not talk about Scott Sinclair.
Another weak ghost.

Scott Sinclair proving Lenny correct tonight. Completely respect him for what he’s done with Celtic but even last year you could tell he’s lost his spark. Too much riding on this season to be carrying players. Should be sold in Jan

If anyone needs a reminder as to why Scott Sinclair no longer gets a second on the park then look no further. Waste of a jersey unfortunately. Gordon dreadful as well.

Will French Eddy finish the season at Celtic?
