NEW Bhoy Scott Sinclair has admiited he is looking forward to working again with Brendan Rodgers.

The £3.5million winger completed his move from Aston Villa and said: “It feels amazing to have joined Celtic.

“It’s a massive club and I’m looking forward to it. I’m here now and I’m happy to be here.

“When I went back to Aston Villa for pre-season, I heard Celtic were interested and I just knew I had to come here.

“I had to look at this move and I thought it would be great for me. And because I know the manager and I know what to expect.”

Rodgers first worked with Sinclair when he was on the coaching staff at Chelsea when the player arrived from Bristol Rovers in 2005.

The pair were reunited five years later when the Irishman was Swansea manager and signed the player for £500,000.

Sinclair made a massive impact at the Welsh outfit and cost £8million when he was sold to Manchester City in August 2012.

But he struggled to break into the City line-up where current Hoops pair Kolo Toure and Dedryck Boyata were at the club.

Villa bought him for £2.5million from the Etihad side a year ago. 

Sinclair, talking to the official Celtic website, added: “The manager had a great influence when I was at Swansea and that’s when I played my best football.

“Hopefully, he can now get the best football out of me and get my form back out there and score goals and perform.

“I’m just hoping to come here, score some goals, create chances and, hopefully, excite the fans.

“I know Kolo Toure and Dedryck Boyata, but I’m sure it’s a great set of lads here and I’ll quickly settle in.”
