Scott Sinclair has a shot saved by Karl Darlow
Sinclair officially joined Scottish Premiership giants Celtic from Championship club Aston Villa on Sunday.
As announced on the Bhoys’ official website, the 27-year-old has signed a four-year contract with the Glasgow giants. According to The Glasgow Evening Times, the transfer fee was £4.5 million with add-ons.
Sinclair has already made his debut for Celtic, featuring in the Scottish Premiership game against Heart of Midlothian away from home on Sunday afternoon.
The former Chelsea and Manchester City winger did not start the match at the Tynecastle Stadium in Edinburgh, but he came on as a substitute just past the hour mark.
The Englishman had a debut to remember, as he scored the winner in the Bhoys’ 2-1 victory over Hearts.
Celtic midfielder Brown has been impressed with Sinclair and has spoken highly of the winger.

“I’m delighted for him (Sinclair),” Brown told Celtic’s official website. “That’s him straight up and running. He’s a great lad. He has come in and been good about dressing room since coming in.
“He’s shown his qualities today with his pace for the goal. He’s managed to clear it and then he’s in the six-yard box and that’s the kind of players we want to bring in.
“He has done it at the highest level. He has been at great teams down in England and played fantastically and hopefully he can do it for us as well.
“He’s a top quality player so he doesn’t need a boost, but to get off his mark on his debut is great for anybody.”
Sinclair scored two goals and created four chances in 27 Premier League appearances for Villa during the 2015-16 campaign.
