CELTIC legend Davie Hay has revealed he doesn’t think Scott Sinclair has anything to prove in the run-in to the campaign.
The flamboyant wing-raider has been criticised in some quarters for not hitting the heights of his debut season following his £4.5million summer switch from Aston Villa.
Sinclair claimed 25 goals as he won a raft of Player of the Year awards, but Brendan Rodgers has left him out of the team in recent months, most notably the 3-2 victory at Ibrox when he opted to bring on Odsonne Edouard as his final substitute.
The 29-year-old attacker has dismissed suggestions he is looking to return across the border and has insisted he will be at Parkhead for 10-in-a-row.
Hay said: “I have to say I don’t quite subscribe to the theory that it has been a poor season for Scott Sinclair.
“With 17 goals to his name, I think you have to see the bigger picture.
“I certainly think there is still plenty for him to offer at Celtic. He had an outstanding campaign last season and I think because of the bar being so high, people are critical because he hasn’t being quite at the same level.
“But I maintain you would be hard pressed not to make a case for what he has done for Celtic.
“There is a wee bit of football still to be played between now and the finale to the campaign and he is one of those who will have benefited from the breather over the international weeks.
“It will be interesting to see just how he finishes the season off.”
