Celtic boss Lennon says Hooper deserves England call

Celtic boss Neil Lennon says Gary Hooper should be called up by England.

The former Scunthorpe United striker struck a hat-trick in their League Cup win over Raith Rovers.

Lennon said: "In Hooper we have a phenomenal player, not just his goals but his play in general was of a very high standard tonight.

"If you look at his record, he does score a lot of goals and it is the hardest thing to do, and he scores in the big games.

"He is a good footballer, an intelligent footballer, very quick over five or 10 yards, his touch is sublime at times.

"He has led the line brilliantly for us this season and I think he is good enough to play for England."
