Video: Scott Sinclair back at Paradise, winger starts against Celtic

Scott Sinclair has been named in the starting XI for Preston North End as they face Celtic this evening at Celtic Park. The game is mainly to prepare both sides for their upcoming seasons but it will have added significance to Sinclair, who finally gets the chance to revisit Paradise after his exit in January 2020.

Sinclair was a key player in the Treble Treble team as one of Brendan Rodgers’ favourite players. From signing from Aston Villa, Sinclair scored on his debut and the next four games after that – becoming the first player in 94 years to score five goals in his first five games. However, Rodgers’ departure and the arrival of Neil Lennon saw Sinclair’s game time dry up and he was clearly out of favour with Lennon. In 167 appearances, Sinclair scored 62 goals as well as winning 9 trophies in his time in Glasgow.
