Neil Lennon Confirms Scott Sinclair Missed Cluj Game Due to Interest from English Clubs

Celtic boss Neil Lennon has confirmed Scott Sinclair missed Wednesday night’s Champions League qualifier against CFR Cluj due to interest in the winger from clubs in England.

The transfer window down south closes on Thursday at 5pm, with some teams in the cash-rich Premier League scrambling to finalise last-minute deals ahead of the earlier-than-usual deadline.

According to the Sun, newly promoted Sheffield United are interested in bringing Sinclair, 30, back to English football after his three-year stay in Scotland, where he has bagged almost 60 goals and nine trophies.

Sinclair has played a massive part in Celtic’s success in recent seasons, but Hoops manager Lennon admits his time in Glasgow could be drawing to a close.

Speaking via the BBC, Lennon was asked why Sinclair wasn’t in Romania with the rest of his team-mates, and he bluntly explained: “There’s a bit of interest, but nothing concrete at the minute.

“That might change over the next 24 hours.”

He’s often had his critics since moving to Parkhead from Aston Villa for less than £4 million in 2016, but there can be no denying Sinclair’s contribution to the Celtic cause.

Do you think selling him would be the best thing to do, or should Lennon try and hold onto the 30-year-old for one more year?
