‘I want to be here for 10-in-a-row,’ magical words from Scotty Sinclair


“It was just speculation and maybe because I didn’t play in the last couple of games – but I love this club and I love being here.

“This is why I chose to play for Celtic. I’m happy and enjoying my football. There’s always going to be speculation, but I need to put my head down and get back to the form that I showed the fans last year.

“I have been to so many clubs and this is where I’ve been at my happiest. Leaving here would be out the question. I want to be here for 10-in-a-row.

“The missus is settled and loves it up here – she loves the city and everything about it. We have another little one on the way as well. I’m in a happy place right now.

“My confidence is still up there. I’m still confident I can score goals and play well but it’s just putting that on to the pitch and giving the fans something to cheer about.

“I set my standards so high, winning Player of the Year and as a team we won an Invincible Treble, so it was an unbelievable year and those are the standards everyone expects now. That’s fair enough and it’s about proving that, keeping your confidence up, which it is, and going out and performing.

“I think it’ll be a tough game (against Ross County) – it always is no matter where the team are in the league. Whenever a team comes to Celtic Park, it’s like their cup final. I’m sure we’ll have more possession and they might sit in. It will be a very hard game but we want to get that momentum back, as we go into the last part of the season.

“Coming back, the players who didn’t go on the internationals are going to be fresher while those who played in the international matches will have been ticking over. It’s up to us to win the games and then pick up the momentum.”
