Celtic forward Scott Sinclair insists he has never felt happier in his career after winning two gongs at the club’s awards evening.

The former Swansea star has been a huge hit since joining the club this summer and his performances were rewarded on Sunday.

Sinclair was voted the club’s player of the year by both his team-mates and fans and the 28-year-old admitted it was a huge honour in what has been a sublime season for the Hoops.

After poor spells with Manchester City and Aston Villa, Sinclair has turned his career around after scoring 25 goals and he was quick to thank everyone that voted for him.

He told the club’s official website: “This is the best time and the happiest time in my career right now. To have the connection with the fans and all of them who voted for me, it just means so much to me.

“It’s amazing. The season we have had, there are so many other players in the team who were up for the award and it’s great to get it.

“When your team-mates vote for you, it means so much. Anyone could have won it. Any award you pick up is special. When players vote for you to win it, it’s a great feeling.”

Kieran Tierney won the club’s young player of the year award, while Moussa Dembele won the best goal after his strike against St Johnstone in February.

The trio will be hoping to celebrate by beating St Johnstone again this weekend, with the Hoops 1.20 favourites to do so. The draw is 6.50, while their opponents are priced at odds of 12.00.
