Former Aston Villa striker and current pundit Stan Collymore has taken to Twitter to state that Scott Sinclair signing for Celtic is 'potentially very good'.

Sinclair, 27, brought his time at Aston Villa to an end this morning as he signed a four-year contract at Celtic, which was only the start of a dream day for the winger.

Sinclair, who hit six goals in 27 games for Aston Villa last season as they were relegated in a dismal campaign, was named on the bench for Celtic as they took on Hearts just hours after Sinclair signed his contract - and he came on as a substitute to win the game with a late goal.

Celtic fans are naturally ecstatic to see Sinclair make an instant impact in the famous green and white hoops, and manager Brendan Rodgers will be particularly happy just to see Sinclair finally sign on the dotted line.

Sinclair's protracted move to Celtic has been rumbling for weeks now, but it's no surprise that Rodgers was so desperate to land the winger. The duo worked together at Chelsea and Swansea City, with Sinclair hitting 35 goals in 90 games for the Swans, and now offers Rodgers a goal threat he knows inside out.

With the move confirmed, Sinclair's time at Villa is over - and former Villa striker and current pundit Stan Collymore has taken to Twitter to give his views on the deal.

Collymore suggested that Sinclair's move to Celtic is 'potentially very good', as whilst he was 'hit and miss' for Villa, his relationship with Rodgers is a key factor in the switch.

The former Villa striker noted that Rodgers got the best out of Sinclair at Swansea, and could do the same again in Glasgow now.

Do you think Sinclair will be a success at Celtic?
