NEIL LENNON admits he is in the dark following comments from Scott Sinclair, as reported in CQN yesterday.
The English forward, who cost £4.5million when he joined from Aston Villa in August 2016 as one of Brendan Rodgers’ first buys for the club, has revealed he may be forced to quit the Hoops next month in pursuit of game time.
Sinclair, who is out of contract in June, made his first competitive start of the season when he lined up against Cluj in the club’s 2-0 Europa League Group E loss in Romania on Thursday.
The 30-year-old attacker, who hit 61 goals in his first three seasons at the champions, complained of “being pushed to the side” after losing his first-team slot to Mohamed Elyounoussi, who arrived in August on a season-long loan from Southampton, and the emerging Mikey Johnston.
Lennon, speaking to Evening Times, revealed: “I’m not aware of those quotes. We will have a chat with Sincy going forwards.
“It’s been a difficult period for him because of the quality in front of him.”
Sinclair was missing again from the squad that faced Hibs at Parkhead yesterday when goals from Jeremie Frimpong and Odsonne Edouard gave them a 2-0 win to maintain their two-point lead at the Premiership pinnacle.
