Celtic boss Lennon desperate to keep Southampton target Hooper

Celtic boss Neil Lennon is desperate to keep hold of striker Gary Hooper.

Newly-promoted Southampton are leading the chase for the 29-goal hitman, but Lennon doesn't want him to leave.

He said: "I've no idea what his value is. But if you look at Nikica Jelavic and what he's achieved since going down to Everton, there's no reason Gary can't do that.

"And I'm talking about any division, whether it be the Premier League or Spain or Italy. He scores big goals in big games."
