Scott Sinclair: I couldn't turn down chance to be reunited with Brendan Rodgers at Celtic | The Sun

SCOTT SINCLAIR admits he couldn't turn down the chance to be reunited with Brendan Rodgers at Celtic.

The Aston Villa winger has moved to Parkhead on a four-year deal for a fee that could rise to £4.5million.

Sinclair could make his debut against Hearts today and can't wait to work with former Swansea gaffer Rodgers again.

He said: “The manager had a great influence when I was at Swansea and that’s when I played my best football.

"Hopefully now I can get the best football out of me and get my form back out there and score goals and perform.

“I’m just hoping to come here, score some goals, create chances and hopefully excite the fans.

“It feels amazing to have joined Celtic. It’s a massive club and I’m looking forward to it. I’m happy to be here.

He said: “I watched the Astana game in midweek and the atmosphere was incredibe.
