Celtic legend Bertie Auld has told the Daily Mail he believes the current squad still needs more players but is impressed by the capture of Scott Sinclair.

New manager Brendan Rodgers was busy in the summer transfer window as he brought in five new players to the squad, as well as youngster Kristoffer Ajer, who was signed by predecessor Ronny Deila.

The Northern Irishman was keen to improve his options across the park as he added a goalkeeper, two defenders, a winger and a striker.

His signings have so far proved to be smart ones as his side has started the season on fire with 16 points from their first six games.

Forward Scott Sinclair has been the best of the bunch to date, scoring six goals in his first six league games for the club and Auld has been left impressed.

“I still feel we need a couple of players, but I like Sinclair and I like the big centre-forward (Moussa Dembele), he is starting to look the part,” he told the Daily Mail.

“Sinclair is the type of player that Celtic supporters love, someone who is going to take it from defence to attack and get by players.”

Celtic will now be hoping that Sinclair can continue his fine form against Manchester City in the Champions League this week.

Pep Guardiola’s side travel to Scotland in fine form, having won all of their games this season and sitting top of the Premier League table.

It makes Tuesday’s game an extremely tough one for Brendan Rodgers team and they will need their star men like Sinclair on the top of their game if they are to come away with a positive result.
