Trevor Sinclair has admitted he would have loved to play alongside Henrik Larsson at Celtic.

Former Premier League midfielder Trevor Sinclair has admitted on Twitter that he would have loved to have played for Celtic during his playing days.

Sinclair, 42, featured for the likes of Blackpool, Queens Park Rangers, West Ham United, Manchester City, Cardiff City and Lancaster City during a playing career spanning 25 years.

Many will remember him for his stunning overhead kick for QPR against Barnsley back in 1997, whilst others will think back to his superb displays for England at the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea.

Now a pundit, Sinclair often gives his thoughts on many issues in the Premier League, but he also posts about his affinity for Celtic on Twitter.

Sinclair, who admitted on Twitter that he was brought up on the Bhoys by his father, was then asked whether he ever had the chance to sign for Celtic during his playing career.

The former midfielder admitted that he would have loved to have played for Celtic, mainly so he could supply legendary Bhoys striker Henrik Larsson - but he 'sadly' was never given the opportunity to turn out in the famous green and white hoops.

Sinclair's comments just go to show how big Celtic are, and how players would love to play for the club - and that must be a continual boost for manager Ronny Deila as he attempts to lure new signings to Celtic Park in the January transfer window.
