Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to react after Scott Sinclair bagged a hat-trick against St Johnstone in the Scottish Cup to send the Bhoys into the quarter-finals.
The former Manchester City forward displayed ice-cool composure in front of goal to bag a treble, with James Forrest and an unlikely scorer in Scott Brown – whose wonder goal was his first in two years – rounding off a dominant victory.
Sinclair’s hat-trick helped Brendan Rodgers’ men to what was their 24th consecutive domestic cup win as they aim to complete another treble, and signals a remarkable turnaround in form after being slated by Celtic fans earlier in the season.

The former Swansea star has now hit 16 goals across all competitions so far this season, displaying an unerring composure to his finishing which is to be vital if Celtic are to beat Rangers to the Scottish Premiership title.
Fans of the Scottish giants on Twitter were in awe at Brown’s screamer, but also took time to commend Sinclair on his match-winning performance and potency in front of goal…
All the people who said Scotty Sinclair was finished must be enjoying that humble pie right now. Guy is an absolute baller and was outstanding today.

Onto Celtic though, since Sinclair has had some proper competition how good has he looked? Way too settled as of late. Also means in the more hostile games he doesn’t have to start as was one that would go hiding. Can now put him on late on when the going is good 🍀

He is bang on form , and his goals are top drawer, part of a Celtic team on a high, and I dont see any one soon stopping that

Sinclair with 16 goals for the season – two behind his total last year. A winger who guarantees you an average of about 20 goals per season and c. 12 assists is invaluable. And we’ve over three months still to go.

Never shrinks even when either the team or himself are struggling. Has the strong mentality required to play for Celtic.

I’m not sure it’s a coincidence that Sinclair has seen his confidence grow week on week with the addition of more quality players.
No longer is he the”marked man”… We have serious attacking threat everywhere and it’s taken the main focus away from him and spread it out.
