Scott Sinclair admits he loved the "inspirational" time he spent at Celtic and has thanked supporters for their love.

The winger joined Preston on a two-and-a-half-year deal earlier this week after three years in a Hoops jersey.

Fans told of their sadness at Sinclair's departure after the player was unable to nail down a starting berth under Neil Lennon.

But, in an emotional social media goodbye, Sinclair bid farewell to supporters and rhymed off the accomplishments he managed during his trophy-laden spell in Glasgow.

Posting online, Sinclair wrote: "Thank you Celtic, the staff and players we've created history and made amazing memories that I will never forget.

"From the invincible treble, treble-treble and on a personal note being the top scorer in the time we did it and becoming Scotland's player of the year.

"But most importantly thank you to all the fans for the love and support you have shown me over the last 3 and half years I've been there.

"It has been inspirational, an honour and pleasure to wear the shirt, you will be missed."
