Cooper: Hull youngsters happy for Cairney

Hull City teenage defender Liam Cooper is delighted for teammate Tom Cairney's recent success.

Tigers winger Cairney has been a revelation since the turn of the year and his form has attracted interest from Chelsea and Manchester City.

Cooper told the Hull Daily Mail: "It's every young lad's dream to be in the position that Tom is now.

"The manager is always positive with the young lads and he's been true to his word where you'll play if you're good enough.

"I'm chuffed to bits for Tom. There's no jealousy. All the young lads are desperate to see him do well. He's a great lad and player."
