Celtic Outcast May Look To Terminate Contract In Order To Force Through Move

Celtic winger Scott Sinclair may hold talks with the club over terminating his contract, according to reports in the UK. The 30-year-old was not in the matchday squad for the Old Firm derby and is deemed surplus to requirements by Neil Lennon.

With the Scottish and English transfer windows now closed, the only prospect of him moving clubs is if he is a free agent, and he will need consent from the Hoops in order to be released from his current deal.

Celtic extended his contract earlier this summer in order to prevent him leaving for nothing, but no club has been willing to shell out a transfer fee for the winger, as well as matching his salary demands.


Allowing him to leave Celtic Park on a free transfer may be considered in order to reduce the wage bill, especially if he isn’t in the club’s first-team plans.

Sinclair could move back to England if his contract is torn up. He has been linked with Sheffield United and Middlesbrough among other clubs.
