Celtic boss Lennon accepts Norwich, QPR target Hooper will be sold

Celtic boss Neil Lennon accepts he faces selling striker Gary Hooper.

The Scottish Sun says QPR and Norwich City have both tabled £4million bids for the striker which have been booted out by club bosses.

But Lennon — whose team turned in another dismal display — was forced to admit Hooper’s days at Parkhead are all but OVER.

He said: “There has been interest in Gary from two clubs, QPR and Norwich, and I think that will rumble on for a week or so.

“Can I convince him to stay? It’s a difficult one. He’s not featured much for us this pre-season. He’s got a bit of catching up to do and I don’t know where his mind is at the minute.

“I’ve not had the chance to speak to him yet but it could be difficult for us to keep him."
