Celtic winger Scott Sinclair has posted a video on social media which suggests that he continues to train intensely despite struggling for gametime this season.
The 30-year-old shared a video on his official Instagram account @scotty_sinclair which shows him doing a series of running and weight exercises in training, along with the caption “The work never stops“.
Celtic fan @hctelfih on Twitter shared Sinclair’s video and pointed out the winger’s impressive statistics and relentless work ethic.
This video Scott Sinclair posted on insta is kinda sad, but goes to show how much of a professional he is still putting the hard work in. Has played a big part in the last few seasons.

The 30-year-old has featured in only four of the Hoops’ 13 matches so far in 2019/20, coming on as a substitute each time and playing a total of just 56 minutes. [via TransferMarkt.co.uk]
Last week, Football Insider reported that Celtic had given him the green light to leave the club on Scotland’s transfer deadline day amid interest from Sunderland.
These Celtic fans took to Twitter to question his lack of gametime in recent weeks, citing his attitude and record for the club:
The way the club is treating him is disgraceful. @CelticFC sort it out.
Keep the guy involved.

Disgrace that this player has for wherever reason been frozen out.

Watched last season's DVD last night, the impact he has in terms of big game goals and assists is huge, it's sad to see him frozen out

Obviously a mix of Lennon not fancying him and the board not wanting him on the wage bill. Sinclair has been a fantastic servant to the club, criminally underrated. Would still be an extremely useful asset to the team if he was given the chance.
