According to the latest reports from BBC, Celtic have triggered a year-long extension for Scott Sinclair. The Celtic winger was in the final few months of his contract, and he could have left the club on a free transfer. However, Celtic did have an option to extend his deal for another year, and they have exercised that right now.

Neil Lennon explained why he decided to have Sinclair for another season. The interim manager said, ”Scotty will be here for another year. He has been a good player since he walked in the door. It’s a big boost for the squad. He has made a big contribution in the goals column, and that football intelligence and experience is always important to have around, There is a familiarity there for Scott going into the Champions League qualifiers next season. He is one we don’t need to replace.”

Celtic will have too much on their plate in the summer, and they will lose quite a few players in the summer transfer window. With Champions League qualifiers set to start early, Sinclair could be a crucial player for them in the competition.

Just purely looking at Sinclair’s numbers, the English winger has had a fantastic season as he has contributed with 17 goal and six assists this season. But there have been occasions when he has failed to provide much. We are not going to take anything away from him, but quite a few goals have been because of his side’s overall quality. Sinclair has managed to find himself in the right place at the right time.

Right Call By Lennon?

His wing play has been mediocre for the most parts this season, and at 3o, he doesn’t look like improving. However, letting him leave on a free transfer would have been foolish from the club. It remains to be seen what Celtic would do with the player in January of 2020.

What should the club do with him in the future?

We think that the club should look to sell him instead of offering him a new deal or letting him run out his contract in January. The Bhoys will have the likes of Maryan Shved and Daniel Arzani available for the next season so those two can fill in the void left by Sinclair if the club decides to sell him in January.

As of now, we feel that Lennon has played his cards right as letting Sinclair leave on a free transfer would have hampered their team. Moreover, it would have added more pressure on the board to look for his replacement soon. Now the club can take its time and will have two transfer windows to get his replacement.
