Scott Sinclair in post-match rammy with Motherwell member of staff

Celtic winger Scott Sinclair has reportedly been involved in a bust-up with a Motherwell member of staff.

Gordon Dalziel claimed on Radio Clyde that Sinclair and the Motherwell staff member were involved in an “intense” exchange during the post-match warm down.

He said: ” I have never in all my years witnessed something like that.

“They were ready to go for each other. I thought for a minute they were going to come to blows.”

It was reported that Motherwell chief executive Alan Burrows had to split the pair up.

Sinclair had come on as a sub in Celtic’s 5-2 win at Fir Park.

The player has been on the receiving end of abuse from Motherwell fans over the years, seemingly still smarting from the penalty Sinclair won in the Betfred Cup final in 2017.

Sinclair was given pelters days later as he came on as a sub, but didn’t let the boo boys get to him as he scored a late penalty to keep Celtic’s proud unbeaten run going.

It sounded like he was also given the treatment from Motherwell fans as he came on today, although many of them had already gone up the road as Celtic tore them to shreds in the second half.

Sinclair has struggled to get into the side recently, but it’s good to hear he still has fire in his belly.

Hopefully, some of that can translate into performances on the pitch, where his goals have been crucial over the past three seasons, even if his form has dipped.
