Celtic fans hail hat-trick hero Sinclair’s performance in St Johnstone thrashing

Scott Sinclair netted three times as Celtic continued their imperious start to 2019 with a 5-0 thumping of St Johnstone yesterday.

Since the turn of the year, Celtic have responded to the pressure put on them by Rangers in hugely impressive fashion and that continued against St Johnstone yesterday.

Brendan Rodgers’ side secured progression on the Scottish Cup with a comfortable 5-0 victory at Parkhead yesterday, which was the perfect way to prepare for the midweek engagement with Valencia.

Scott Sinclair was the pick of the bunch with a hat-trick to put the visitors to the sword and keep the momentum rolling ahead of the visit of the La Liga outfit on Thursday night.

The Bhoys keep chuntering on, making chances, scoring goals as well as keeping it tight at the back and Sinclair has benefited from the addition of new attacking blood during last month’s transfer window, which has allowed him more space to torment defences.

And the supporters have reponded gleefully, hailing the Englishman’s performance yesterday and hoping for a repeat when Valencia come to town on Thursday…
