  • Scott Sinclair: We’re determined to get the job done at Hampden

    Scott Sinclair: We’re determined to get the job done at Hampden

    By: Joe Donnelly on 22 May, 2019 14:01

  • WITH this season’s League Cup and Scottish Premiership trophy already safely returned to Paradise, Celtic travel to Hampden this Saturday to take on Hearts in the Scottish Cup final. A win would secure an unprecedented third successive domestic sweep, and Hoops winger Scott Sinclair knows exactly what's required of him and his team-mates.

    “That’s the main thing as players - winning games and winning trophies,” said Sinclair ahead of the weekend’s encounter. “We need to turn up, we need to make sure we play our game, and most importantly, we need to win.

    “We know exactly what we need to do, but we’re also very relaxed going into the game because we’ve been there before. We had a good few days and made sure we’ve had a good last week, so we go in full of confidence.”

    Speaking of his own contributions, Sinclair said he was delighted to have recently extended his stay in Glasgow, and said he’ll do everything he can to leave his mark on another cup final – be that from within the starting XI, or from off the bench.

    Despite Celtic’s historic achievements in recent years, the attacker acknowledged the external pressures the squad faces, but said a combination of hard work, a passionate manager and playing to the occasion is enough to set the tone neccesary for success.

    He added: “I’ve always wanted to stay. Everyone knows my situation. I love the fans, I love playing for Celtic. Playing in cup finals, there’s nothing better, and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. To have won these trophies and to be part of this team, I couldn’t have wished for more.

    “It all comes down to hard work and the winning mentality of the players. Every time we step out there, we want to win games and we want to win trophies. By winning games and trophies, it gives you confidence. This team is full of confidence, and we’re always fighting for places.

    “It’s a great time to be part of the club, but we need to make sure we get the job done. There’s always going to be criticism, but if it was that easy, a team would have done it before. No one has done it, so it goes to show that it’s tough.

    “With the game this weekend, it’s just about that one last push. It’s going to be a tough game, but I’m sure it’ll be a great game. I don’t think it’ll settle in with any of the players until years to come. First of all, we’ve still to get the job done. For us, going into this last game, there’s a lot of pressure on us, but hopefully we’ll be lifting the trophy.”
