Scott Sinclair’s future at Celtic has been the subject of a number of discussions this season, with many having split opinions on the winger’s lack of game time.
On the one hand, some believe Neil Lennon’s treatment of the 30-year-old has been unfair and harsh given how much the winger contributed to Celtic’s Treble Treble success.
On the other however, many suggest Sinclair’s impact on games started to diminish last season and he does not deserve a place in the side ahead of the likes of Mikey Johnston or Mohamed Elyounoussi.
Either way, Lennon has confirmed that Sinclair will feature against CFR Cluj, and it could be a night that determines his future one way or another.

While he looks a long way down the pecking order at Celtic, a strong performance against Cluj could change his fortunes for the better and see him feature more regularly in the second-half of the season.
Alternatively, it is an excellent chance to put himself in the shop window ahead of the January market opening next month, and earn a move away that he must be considering.
Whichever way he looks at it, one thing is for sure; with just 86 minutes of first-team football under his belt so far this season, Sinclair must take any opportunity he is given with both hands.
