Celtic have opted to extend Scott Sinclair's contract extension for another year, as the Glasgow outfit eye up a decade of unprecedented success at Parkhead.
Sinclair's contract was due to run out in the coming weeks, but this morning's announcement ensures Neil Lennon retains the services of one of his most menacing attackers next season.
The 30-year-old arrived in Glasgow from Aston Villa in 2016 and has gone on to become one of the club's most successful signings in recent years. Moreover, he won the club's Player of the Year award two years ago during the side's 2016-17 treble-winning season.
This season, the English winger has scored 17 times for the club across all competitions.
Interim Celtic boss Neil Lennon welcomed this morning's news:
Yes, so Scott will be here for another year. He has been a good player since he walked in the door. He has made a big contribution in the goals column and that football intelligence and experience is always important to have around.
Sinclair was heavily linked with a move to Middlesborough during the summer ahead of a possible move to the Premier League for the club next season. The Riverside club currently sit one point behind Derby County in the Championship table, a spot off a place in the lucrative promotion play-offs.
The reigning Scottish league champions can clinch the title again this weekend when they travel to the Pittodrie Stadium to play Aberdeen on Saturday afternoon. Even a draw for the visitors would see them retain the league crown ahead of a trip across the city to rivals Rangers eight days later.
