Many Celtic fans clearly remember former winger Scott Sinclair fondly as they have been reacting to a question asked about the player by Celtic1967.com on Twitter.
He recently moved on to Championship side Preston after struggling for game time in his last season in Scotland, but you can tell fans definitely enjoyed his spell at the club after they left very positive answers to Celtic 1967.com’s question, ‘How will @Scotty_Sinclair be remembered at Celtic?’
The attacker signed from English club Aston Villa for £3.69 million in the summer transfer window of 2016, per Transfermarkt, and looked like a good prospect for the Hoops, but no one could have pictured how much he would set the Scottish league alight.
Should Sinclair have been sold?
The Englishman managed to score 21 goals and pick up 10 assists in 35 appearances in the division in his first campaign, helping the side win the domestic treble along the way. Even though this was his best goal scoring season ever at the club, the winger continued to pick up a lot of goals whilst playing for the Hoops, as he managed 62 strikes and 37 assists in his 167 games in all competitions for the club, per Transfermarkt.
Here is what fans said following the tweet:
Played more games and scored more goals during the treble treble. His song was so Wonderful, Beautiful and Magical 😉🍀

Fondly. He did well, even though his form dropped a bit but he kept working away and stayed fit. Was available if needed. And didn’t cause trouble, or go to the papers.
I’m old enough to remember the 3 amigos and I think Scotty will be well thought of.

Huge part of a treble treble winning squad, gave his all, total commitment even when not playing, bargain signing, ultimately will be remember as a great Celtic player, & rightly so. And we got a fantastic song for him too. 🍀
