SCOTT SINCLAIR is ready to run the gauntlet once again in the midday Premiership clash at Ibrox on Sunday.

The Celtic winger has been on the receiving end of some vile abuse from the home support, but the 28-year-old attacker admitted it merely spurs him on.

He revealed: “You have to be able to thrive in all atmospheres, especially the ones where fans are trying to intimidate you.

“That’s the whole point of playing football. You’re not always going to be playing in front of fans who are all behind you.

“It’s such a big game and we will give it our all and enjoy the occasion. The opposition fans are going to give you stick and try and put you off your game.

“But in these sort of matches I stay focused and go out there and do what I do.

“It’s a different feeling compared to having 60,000 Celtic fans behind you.

“They give you that lift to keep going and it’s an incredible feeling having that kind of support.

“Obviously, when you go away from home to somewhere like Ibrox it’s not like that.

“You have over 40,000 people against you and it’s one of those things you need to enjoy dealing with.

“It’s great for players to be involved in those games and come away with the three points.”
