Celtic reportedly among bookies favourites to sign Gary Hooper

Could Celtic add this proven goal-scorer to their ranks next season?

Former Celtic striker Gary Hooper has been linked with a potential move back to the Bhoys, with the Scunthorpe Telegraph taking a look at the odds as to which club the 27-year-old could be turning out for next season.

Celtic are third favourites to bring the forward back to Scotland with BetVictor, and there is no doubt he would be welcomed with open arms by supporters and management alike.

Hooper played 37 matches for Norwich last season, scoring 13 goals in the process, and he has a total of 20 goals in 68 matches for the Canaries.

His strikes helped Norwich earn promotion back to the Premier League but his previous spell in the top flight was not as productive as he would have hoped.

That could mean he has every intention of proving his doubters wrong this time round, but the latest report has suggested he could well be on his way, either back to the second tier or up to the Scottish Premiership.

Celtic have the bonus of being able to offer Hooper Champions League football and with only two senior strikers on their books, Ronny Deila’s side could do with the Norwich star’s accuracy in front of goal.

Hooper scored 82 goals in 138 matches for Celtic and according to the bookies at least, he may still get the chance to add to that tally.
