Trevor Sinclair sends strong message to Celtic on Twitter

Celtic Parkhead

Trevor Sinclair throws his support behind Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic for the upcoming Scottish Cup semi-final with Rangers.

Premier League legend Trevor Sinclair has taken to Twitter to show his support for Celtic ahead of this afternoon's massive Scottish Cup semi-final with Rangers.

Both Old Firm giants renew hostilities at Hampden Park for what will be just the second meeting between the sides since 2012 - Celtic winning the last one 14 months ago, a 2-0 League Cup semi-final win.

Rangers, however, seem to be much better equipped this time around, with manager Mark Warburton already securing promotion back to Scotland's top flight as well as a Petrofac Cup trophy.

Ronny Deila's side are looking to move within 90 minutes of winning the Scottish Cup, which could mark a potential double for them this season as the Bhoys - eight points clear of second-placed Aberdeen - hunt a fifth straight Premiership title.

And Sinclair made his feelings perfectly clear on Twitter recently.


Celtic are big favourites to progress into the showpiece, but few would be surprised if Rangers managed to snatch the bragging rights.


Deila and co should be wary of how dangerous a relaxed Rangers side can be. They have been overwhelming favourites themselves in nigh-on every game this season, but now they are the underdogs and Celtic must be mindful of that.
