“Scott Sinclair was our top goalscorer last year and he wasn’t even in the team every week,” Rodgers said.

“He has come back super hungry and you can see the difference in Scott. The first two weeks he has come back the Scott Sinclair I have known from Chelsea, Swansea and the one I brought here in the first year.”

Celtic have been back at work for the past two weeks, as Rodgers gets them ready for the new term.
