Scottish champions Celtic only need one more win to retain their title and head to Tynecastle next to play Hearts.

If they pick up the three points it will be of special significance to Scott Sinclair who made his debut on the same ground back in August.

Speaking to the club's official website he said: "It would be great for myself and the team, and with me coming on and scoring the winner, I have good memories, and hopefully I have more of them by winning the title there.

“It seems such a long time ago. I wasn’t too sure if I would make the bench as it was so quick and fast. I literally had the scans, and before you know it I was on the bench. I never really thought I would be involved and I came on and scored the winner. It couldn’t have been written any better. It was great to hit the ground running.”

Celtic are still unbeaten in domestic competition and have only drawn two league games in that remarkle run which has also seen them lift the League Cup and progress to the semi-final of the Scottish Cup.
