Celtic have done well with Forster, Wanyama and Hooper says Lennon

Celtic boss Neil Lennon is proud of the job the club has done with the development of a particular trio of players.

The Hoops helped turn former Newcastle United youngster Fraser Forster into a top quality goalkeeper, unearthed Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama and took a chance on ex-Scunthorpe United striker Gary Hooper and all have become key players at the Glasgow club.

"No-one had really heard of some our signings," Lennon said.

"Forster was third choice at Newcastle, Wanyama was unknown and Hooper was at Scunthorpe.

"We trusted our judgement and developed them. We have to look at our own contribution and I believe we've done well."
