SCOTT SINCLAIR has told the Celtic fans he will be revitalised and raring to go in the new campaign.

The exciting raider was the champions’ top scorer last season with 18 goals, but still failed to hit the heights of the his debut term when he claimed 25 strikes.

Sinclair, a £4.5million buy from Aston Villa in August 2016, said: “The work I have been putting in on the off-season is paying off and I have come back really sharp.

“Last year was a quick turnaround. We had two weeks off and we were straight back in. This year I have had a good break and managed to get in a lot of relaxation so I am ready to go again.

“The level I set was so high and and I tried to replicate that game after game.

“That is the pressure I have put on myself. Every single game I go into everyone expects two or three goals or me to get Man of the Match, but it is not always going to be the case.

“You want to keep the standard up. But whatever scenario unfolds I will keep giving 100 per cent. Hopefully, this can be an even better season for me again. I want to get back to that level and to show the fans the excitement of me playing again.

“I feel physically it is the best I have been, the way I have been working in pre-season. I feel fit and ready and excited about this season.”
