Out-of-favour Celtic winger Scott Sinclair has delighted at returning to action for the Bhoys in the Scottish League Cup against Partick Thistle on Wednesday evening.

The Scottish champions fired five past Championship side Partick Thistle to progress to the semi-finals of the Scottish League Cup at Celtic Park.  


Vakoun Issouf Bayo's first-half opener was followed up by goals from Tom Rogic, Olivier Ntcham and Sinclair in the second half, with Ntcham scoring a brace.

Sinclair, who started his first game of the season for Celtic after being out of favour under Neil Lennon, marked the occasion with his second goal of the campaign and was delighted to do so.

The 30-year-old winger has revealed that he missed the feeling of playing and scoring for the Bhoys, and thanked the fans for their support, while also vowing to do his best to earn his role in the first-team.

Oh, I’ve missed this feeling”, Sinclair wrote on Twitter, while posting a photograph.

"Unbelievable reception from the fans, I will continue to keep fighting for this shirt."

Although Sinclair has been out-of-favour for most of the season so far, Celtic boss Lennon made it clear after the match that he remains part of his first-team plans.
