Scottish league title/cup double highlight of my career - Celtic's Hooper

Celtic striker Gary Hooper says his pair of goals in Sunday's Scottish Cup triumph has helped him enjoy the best season of his career thus far.

The 25-year old scored twice in the first half to set up the 3-0 victory over Hibernian at Hampden and he was absolutely delighted to play his part in the Glasgow giants' domestic double, capping off a stellar season with their 36th cup hoist.

"It was a great win in the end and we're delighted with the double," said Hooper.

"This, getting to the last 16 of the Champions League, winning the league, and scoring 31 goals, I'm at the top of my career.

"At the start of the season my aim was to beat last year's goals total and I did that two games ago. I was unlucky not to get to 20 in the league but I wanted to get past 30 overall and I managed that.

"This feels even better than the first time we won the Scottish Cup two years ago because we did this one in style.

"We've also got the league win and the Champions League run behind us as well so this has been my best season at the club.

"Playing like that, like we did at Hampden, really topped it off."
