Trevor Sinclair hails Henrik Larsson, says he wanted to play alongside him

The former West Ham United, Manchester City and Queens Park Rangers midfielder has paid tribute to the Celtic legend.

Trevor Sinclair has heaped praise on Celtic legend Henrik Larsson on Twitter, criticising the attitude of modern players by comparison.

Indeed, Sinclair, a former West Ham, Manchester City and QPR player who now works as a BBC pundit, took to social media with a picture of the Swede in tears.

He praised Larsson's commitment and suggested that it doesn't mean as much to players nowadays (not necessarily the Celtic players).

And, when asked by a follower if he would have wanted to play alongside the striker, Sinclair replied with the following:

Perhaps a perfect example of Sinclair's point is John Guidetti, who appears more interested in singing his own name than showing any loyalty or dedication to a club.

But the argument can be said to be bland and generic - as there are a number of players these days who are just as committed as anyone in the past.

Just ask skipper Scott Brown how he feels about Celtic and there can be no question of what it 'means' to him. And he is far from the only example.
