Celtic hero John Hartson has given his thoughts on Scott Sinclair's time at Parkhead as the winger prepares to leave the club.

Sinclair is on the verge of departing Glasgow with Preston current favourites to sign him.

The 30-year-old has struggled to nail down a starting berth under Neil Lennon despite being a big part of Brendan Rodgers' time at Celtic.

And with the door open for him to leave, Hoops legend Hartson believes the two were good for one another as Sinclair helped his side to nine trophies during his three years at the club.

Hartson told his social media followers: "If Scott Sinclair was to leave he was good for Celtic and Celtic was good for Sinclair.. 

"Rodgers took him from Villa when he wasn’t a regular. Got him playing well. 

"He’s better moving on as he is down the pecking order of starting games. Expect a few additions in this window."
