FORMER England international star Trevor Sinclair has revealed his biggest career regret – not playing for Celtic!

The 12 times-capped midfielder, who played for his country in the 2002 World Cup Finals, insisted he would have jumped at the chance of playing for the Hoops if he had been given the opportunity.

The skilful London-born entertainer, now 47, was a massive success at Harry Redknapp’s West Ham outfit before his £3.3million switch to Manchester City 2003 where he had an enjoyable four-year spell.

Sinclair reckoned the time to go to Parkhead would have been in 2007 when he left The Etihad at the age of 34, but there was no movement from the Hoops and the player joined Cardiff City.

Speaking to talkSPORT, he said: “I would have loved to have played for Celtic, given the opportunity.

“Especially when I left Manchester City. I had a fantastic year at Cardiff City, we got to the FA Cup Final, but I feel if I had been shown some sort of interest from Celtic then I would definitely gone up north.

“I just feel with Twitter and social media platforms that you get the chance to say what you feel and I didn’t get that in 2007, I didn’t get the chance to put it out there.

“I’ve loved Celtic through a connection with my dad, who is from Glasgow and my mum, who is from southern Ireland.

“It was the only choice for me to support Celtic.”
