Barcelona hold no fear for Celtic, claims Scott Sinclair

Celtic winger Scott Sinclair has no fears ahead of the visit of Barcelona as he looks for major improvement on their Nou Camp showing.

And he believes they can make significantly greater advances when they try to get off the bottom of their Champions League group at Parkhead on Wednesday.

"We have learned a lot and everyone will just be looking forward to that game, including the fans," the former Swansea, Manchester City and Aston Villa player said. "It's a massive game for us to prove ourselves.
