Frank McAvennie has joked to Open Goal that he has more chance than Scott Sinclair of playing for Celtic these days.

The 30-year-old winger was a mainstay under Brendan Rodgers and played a huge role in the Hoops winning three successive domestic trebles.

But Sinclair has found himself on the periphery of things since Lennon took the reins at Celtic, only managing 17 minutes of football in the Premiership this season.

The form of Southampton loanee Mohamed Elyounoussi means that the Englishman is set to stay on the fringes a while longer.

 

And Celtic legend McAvennie claims that he'll get another game for the Bhoys' senior side before Sinclair.

Speaking to Open Goal, he said: "He's got options, with the boy from Southampton. I thought they would've missed Sinclair.......but I've got more chance of getting a game than Sinclair."

It's a shame what's happening with Sinclair, a £3.5 million addition by Rodgers in 2016 [The Times].

He has been immense for Celtic down the years but, on current form, there's no way Lennon can drop Elyounoussi, who has seven goals in 11 games for the Hoops.

With January only around the corner, it wouldn't be a huge surprise if Celtic received offers for Sinclair, who is out of contract next summer.
