Celtic's Winner Bore An Uncanny Resemblance To A Goal On The Same Ground 15 Years Ago

Celtic's Winner Bore An Uncanny Resemblance To A Goal On The Same Ground 15 Years Ago

There were plenty of Celtic fans who deemed Scott Sinclair's arrival in Glasgow a real coup for the Scottish champions, and rightly so.

The 27-year-old winger yesterday revealed how Stillyan Petrov played role in his move to Parkhead - this just a day after he netted a late winner at Hearts to immediately endear himself to Hoops fans.

A Celtic fan page on Facebook was quick to spot the similarity between Sinclair's goal and that of one of his predecessors on the same ground a full 15 years ago, and edited both goals together side by side.

The symmetry between Sinclair's winner and Henrik Larsson's goal in a 3-0 win at Tynecastle back in 2001 is actually quite startling.

Of course, if Sinclair continues to replicate the Swedish icon in such fashion, he'll go on to become a club legend himself.
