Celtic fans react as Scott Sinclair linked with £2m move to Middlesbrough

Scott Sinclair could reportedly join English Championship side Middlesbrough for a bargain £2million fee this summer – and Celtic fans have waved the winger goodbye.

The Sun claim Middlesbrough want to land the 30-year-old winger this summer, as they look for reinforcements. It remains to be seen if Boro will achieve a place in the play-offs, or have to see out another year in the Championship.

Sinclair has failed to replicate his form from 2016-17 in the past two seasons, when he won Player of the Season and scored a whopping 25 goals in 50 league and cup outings.

But his stats are still very strong. Last season, he scored 18 and created 17, and this season he has scored 17 goals and laid on another six assists. 60 goals and 34 assists in 156 appearances is a very, very impressive record.

Celtic have options out wide, with Maryan Shved returning from his loan and Daniel Arzani set to return from an anterior cruciate ligament problem. But Timo Weah and Oliver Burke are only on loan, and look set to leave.

Hoops fans took to Twitter in reaction to the rumours that Sinclair could be on his way to Teesside, and many believe it is the right decision to offload the former Manchester City star at the end of the season.
