Lennon lauds Hooper
Scottish Premier League,
Neil Lennon described five-goal Gary Hooper as priceless after Celtic rounded off their title-winning campaign with a rout of Hearts.
The Hoops, who secured the SPL crown in early April, ensured they finished 20 points clear of Old Firm rivals Rangers by dismissing the challenge of the Scottish Cup finalists with ease.
Hooper netted all of the goals and Lennon stressed he will do all he can to keep his main man.
"It was a tremendous individual performance. He is a goalscorer, they are priceless but we want to keep him here and we will do our very best to do that," said the Celtic boss.
"I think he is happy here but I'm sure there are people out there who will pay for his talent. He is a special player."
The 24-year-old took his season tally to 29 and ensured he lifted the SPL golden boot.
