Can Scott Sinclair ignite his season in Celtic v Red Bull Salzburg?

Scott Sinclair scored the winner against Aberdeen and the weekend and could fully ignite his season if he stars in Celtic’s Europa League clash with Red Bull Salzburg on Thursday.

The 29-year-old flyer has had a difficult campaign so far where he’s struggled to hold down a place in the starting XI, but was given a lift by coming off the bench to net the decisive goal in a 1-0 league win over Aberdeen.

Brendan Rodgers’ team now turn their attention to Austrian outfit Salzburg in the Europa League group stages .

After the confidence of the weekend’s goal, Sinclair could really arrive at the party this season by proving his qualities on the European stage against tricky opponents.

The speed machine has the ability to cause havoc on defenders when on form and is just searching for some regular levels of consistency.

He is a versatile attacker that can play on the wing or more centrally and has shown during his time at Parkhead that he can be a key player for the Bhoys.

Celtic won their opening group match 1-0 over Rosenborg and Thursday would be the perfect time for Sinclair to hit his top form to help the Scottish giants take control of their group by beating Salzburg.
