Gary Hooper should pay a goal bonus fee to teammate Rabiu Ibrahim according to Celtic manager Neil Lennon.

The striker deprived youngster Rabiu Ibrahim of a debut Hoops goal when he tapped in from close range only to be called offside.

Ibrahim’s shot was headed for the back of the net but Hooper denied him the chance to open his scoring account for the club and Lennon suggested he should pay up.

"I am going to fine Gary for that. I think he should pay a goal bonus to the wee man,” he said tongue-in-cheek.

"It looked as if it was going in but Gary is Gary, he wants to be leading goalscorer in the country; let's just say it was instinctive.

"I was very pleased. It was another clean sheet, 24, that's a record. It takes us to 90 points with two games to go and that's tremendous consistency after 92 last season."
