Celtic's Hooper gunning for England call-up

Celtic striker Gary Hooper is determined to earn a call-up to the England national team says his agent.

The 24-year old has netted 42 goals in 72 appearances for the Hoops since joining in July 2010 from Scunthorpe United and his representative, Simon Dent, says he is gunning for a spot in the Three Lions squad.

"Gary has scored goals wherever he has played and has more goals this season than the three England strikers [Fraizer Campbell, Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck] left in the squad to play Holland put together," Dent said.

"It has been said that the SPL is the equivalent of playing in the Championship and that's a reason why Gary has been overlooked.

"You can only score against the team in front of you and Gary has done this consistently from the age of 18.

"We are hoping that Gary will get his chance to impress before the Euros but if he doesn't he'll carry on doing what he does his whole career and not make a fuss."
