Celtic have rejected an offer of in the region of £5m from Norwich City for leading scorer Gary Hooper.

"We had discussions with his representatives this morning and we are waiting to hear back from them" - Neil Lennon
The 24-year-old has scored almost seventy goals since originally joining the Hoops from Scunthorpe United in July 2010, including seventeen in 29 appearances this season.

"The bid has been rejected," manager Neil Lennon confirmed to BBC Scotland. "We had discussions with his representatives this morning and we are waiting to hear back from them."

The Scottish champions are still hopeful that Hooper will yet sign a new contract with them as his current one expires next summer.
