Sinclair made his Champions League debut for the club in the 1-0 defeat at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.

It was only the former Chelsea man's sixth appearance in all competitions since joining from Swansea City on transfer deadline day.

The 23-year-old says he was all too aware that there would be competition for places among Roberto Mancini's expensively assembled squad when he made the move north in August.

He insists he is determined to work hard in training, bide his time, and be ready to stake his claim when opportunities arise.

"It was great that I started the game [in Dortmund] for my experience in the Champions League, but I'm disappointed we lost the game" Sinclair told the club's official website.

"It's always going to need patience. I'm playing in a great side and I've got to be patient.

"I've got to take every training session as it comes and when I get the chance I've got to prove myself."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
