    IF Lennon is serious about treating Sinclair with respect he should start showing it then because even I would be * off if Morgan got picked ahead of me for the squad.

    SCOTT SINCLAIR rejected a move to the MLS this season due to family reasons, according to reports.

    The Celtic winger was handed a one-year contract extension in May, but has been frozen out under Neil Lennon.


    And the Mail on Sunday report that there was a chance the 30-year-old could have ended up in America.

    But family reasons meant that he decided to stay with Celts.


    James Forrest and Mikey Johnston have been Lennon’s first picks out wide with the likes of Lewis Morgan ahead of Sinclair too.

    Lenny discussed his omissions from the squad saying: “It’s understandable if Sinclair feels put out. We don’t want to treat him badly because he’s a senior pro.

    “It’s just that he’s finding it difficult right now to get into the squad. I can’t pick six wingers.


    It’s been tough for Scott. We have a lot of options on the wings.


    We look a threat. We have good pace in the team, something which Mikey brings to us.


    Our wide men have been playing so well and we’ve been scoring goals.”

    Middlesbrough and Sheffield United had been linked with Sinclair but with the English transfer window now closed, there is no prospect of him moving south before the Scottish deadline.


    It is likely Sinclair will remain at Celtic until the January transfer window.

    If Lennon has been told to freeze him out in a Balde like situation, unless he is on a wage structure that sees him earn more if he is in the squad and more again if he plays like Balde was,then it's just stupid not to include him. Lennon has got to have been told to leave him out you would think though. Surely he can't honestly rate Morgan more than Sinclair, if he does then we have got a problem.

    Not the brilliantly ran club some like to pretend. Triggering a contract extension then trying to freeze that same player out is incredibly stupid.

    Just get him back in the squad as he’s clearly better than some of the options being used, and * the wages he’s here now anyway and will more than likely pay it back if he helps us towards success.

    Was so obvious..

    Some of us were saying MLS was the only viable move when the English window shut but obviously he doesn't fancy that..

    A complete mess. Now got a player who's confidence went to * and knows he isn't wanted..

    This is just another example of how poorly we are being run behind the scenes.

    I have been hugely critical of his general performances for years now, but there can be positives to come from this.

    His goalscoring stats have been great, hopefully this situation, at this stage of his career, can light something inside and he grafts and earns his spot in the squad.

    Want to see him running at *, using his pace and putting defenders on the back foot. He can help us win this league.

    Easily better than Morgan but not getting a game so he's being pushed out for a fee, obviously. Problem is he can't go to England and he doesn't want to go to the MLS.

    He ain't leaving. He ain't playing. Wasted wages for us.

    We'll played, Celtic. Well played.

    I still feel we are better having him on the bench at the very least.

    Morgan wont cut it. If we need a goal Sinclair is always a good option to have.

    And this is exactly the reason why it dosen't make any sense to leave him out of the squad, i reckon something has happened that we don't know about ?

    It's obvious what is going on. Lenny refuses to play players who have attractive wives/partners. Lustig was shown the door, Sinclair and Shved are not getting any game time, Julien wasn't being played. * knows what Morgan's must look like to always be in the squad...

    Really poor to offer the guy a new contract and treat him like * on a stick. His game has been off but in my opinion a poor Sinclair is better than Morgan at the minute.

    It's a bad way to treat a player who has contributed a lot to the club the past few years. No matter what people say...that is a fact (and I hate when people say that, but it is).

    Has to be something else there.
