PADDY ROBERTS today praised Celtic’s summer signing from Aston Villa and reckons that Scott Sinclair is now on top form as Celtic prepare to get back to league action on Wednesday evening when St Johnstone visit Celtic Park.
And Roberts admitted that he was very impressed by Sinclair’s spectacular opener yesterday against Albion Rovers in the Scottish Cup, even if he’s not entirely convinced that he meant it!
“I don’t know if he meant it…but it was a great goal,” laughed Paddy at today’s press conference.
“Scott has been great since coming in. He has taken the club by storm. Yesterday he was on top form.”
And young players like Roberts clearly appreciate having such a high quality professional at the club. Still talking about Sinclair, Roberts said:
“He’s been a real help and he’s always staying back to do more and it makes you want to do better yourself.”
Meanwhile Alan Stubbs believes Scott Sinclair is as important to Celtic as Moussa Dembele.
And the ex-Hoops centre-half hailed the impact Sinclair, 27, has had since joining the club in a £4.5million deal from Aston Villa in the summer.
