Scott Sinclair is claimed to be considering leaving Celtic in the summer.

Harry Redknapp has told the Scottish Sun that he would be shocked if Celtic sold Scott Sinclair.

The forward’s future at Celtic has come into doubt lately, with some reports suggesting he is looking to return to the Premier League.

It is believed that Bournemouth are looking at the wide-man, and Redknapp would be happy to the the 28-year-old join the Cherries.

He said: “He had a sort of wasted few years in England, he wasn’t playing and sort of drifted into the wilderness. But at Celtic he’s found a spark again.

Scott Sinclair of Celtic is seen during the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Celtic and Motherwell at Celtic Park on December 2, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

“He had a great first season, scored plenty of goals and won everything up there.

“I’d be surprised if Celtic were to sell him. But if they do, and Bournemouth were to go for him, it could be a great move. I’d love to see him playing down here.”

Sinclair has only been at Celtic for two seasons, but his form has dipped lately.

Scott Sinclair of Celtic vies with Daniel Candeias of Rangers during the Scottish Premier League match between Celtic and Ranger at Celtic Park on December 30, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Sinclair was a revelation during his first term at Parkhead, and finished as the Bhoys top scorer.

The former Manchester City man has not hit the back of the net anywhere near as frequently this term, and he has just nine league goals to his name.

If Celtic do sell Sinclair they will surely make profit on the rapid forward, but finding a replacement of equal quality would be a big challenge.
