Southampton target Hooper eyeing Champions League with Celtic

Gary Hooper has re-iterated his stance on remaining with Celtic as he targets Champions League football.

The 24-year old is again being linked with Southampton, who are managed by his former Scunthorpe United boss Nigel Adkins, but Hooper has made it clear that he is very happy at Parkhead.

"There are always rumours about that," he told the Evening Times.

"But I have two years left on my contract, I am scoring goals and I am loving my football.

"There is a big chance for us to play Champions League football next season and that has been a personal ambition of mine for a long time.

"I loved playing in the Europa League this season and I think the game away to Udinese is one of the highlights of my career. I would love the chance to sample the Champions League now."
