Celtic’s Scott Sinclair has said that he is happy to fight for his place in the Celtic ranks and would also keep on taking penalties for his side. The player scored twice in the match against Airdrie in the Scottish Cup to see his side get over the line in the Scottish Cup and move to the next round but missed a penalty while also having a goal disallowed.
Speaking to the media after the match, the player said, “I’m still hungry. I just concentrate on my game and keep performing. That’s all I can do. The manager has brought in players and it creates good, healthy competition. It keeps everyone on their toes and it makes sure that everyone keeps performing. So it’s good for everyone.”
Speaking about the missed penalty, the former Aston Villa forward said, “I missed a couple of opportunities early on but the thing is, you always get those games. But it is up to me now, with the experience I now have, if you miss a chance or miss a penalty you just get on with it. You saw that I just kept going and my goals came. For the penalty the goalkeeper went the right way and made a great save. But the next time I take a penalty I’ll put it away.”
He concluded, “I’ve taken some important penalties since I’ve been here, I can think of numerous occasions. I’ll always step up, I’ve always got that confidence, and the next time I’ll put it away.”
