Scott Sinclair still harbours ambitions of playing for England and hopes his progress in the Champions League with Celtic can help him make his breakthrough.

The Celtic wide player has represented England at under-21 level and played for Team GB at the 2012 Olympics but has never won a full cap.

His Olympic appearance came just before an £8million move from Swansea to Manchester City but he struggled for first-team opportunities and his subsequent move to Aston Villa turned sour when his side were relegated.

However, a reunion with former Swans boss Brendan Rodgers in Glasgow has revived his career and the 27-year-old has already scored 10 goals this season.

When asked about his England hopes, Sinclair said: "When my time is right, it will come but at the moment I'm concentrating on playing week by week. If I can get into England that would be great but my ambitions are still to play for my country.

"I'm playing every week and scoring goals and getting back to form and I'm just enjoying my football again. That was the main reason for me coming here and I haven't looked back since."
