Scott Sinclair netted on his Celtic debut.
Scott Sinclair could not have dreamed of a better start to his Celtic career, coming off the bench to net a winner on his debut against Hearts.
The 27-year-old was part of Villa's team which were relegated from the Premier League last season, winning only three matches.

Already it appears he can look forward to more success at his new club, while Villa had a day to forget on their Championship opener.
Shortly after Sinclair bagged his winner, Villa kicked off their campaign against Sheffield Wednesday, slipping to a 1-0 defeat through a Fernando Forestieri winner.

Sinclair's goal highlighted what he is capable of, and considering his strong record in the Championship to Swansea, Villa may come to regret not holding onto him for one more season.
For Villa fans watching on, the mood at seeing Sinclair net was mixed with simply bemoaning their luck at nothing going right for them at present, to those criticising the standard of Scottish football.
Here is a look at the reaction to Sinclair's instant impact...
People talking about Scott Sinclair setting the SPL on fire, If Gabby Agmonglahor signs for Rangers he'll score 30+ a season up there #avfc— Jake (@Jakeyb14) August 7, 2016
Ruffled a few Celtic fans feathers last night how shite the SPL was compared to championship. Just heard Sinclair scored case closed #avfc— Simon Osborn (@Ossie12Simon) August 7, 2016
I'm glad Sinclair has gone. I had high hopes for him, but he was only motivated by money #avfc.— Pete Jenks (@PeteJenks1) August 7, 2016
#avfc Sinclair showed more passion in the closing minutes of the Celtic game than he did for his entire villa career— Nathan Cotterill (@NathanCotterill) August 7, 2016
I really hope people don't keep saying we should have kept Sinclair every time he scores in the Scottish pub league #avfc— Karl Bridges (@KarlBridges) August 7, 2016
