Celtic midfielder Joe Ledley is hoping that key duo Gary Hooper and Victor Wanyama will continue their starring roles at Parkhead.

"I think we are just of the opinion that it is just speculation" - Joe Ledley

Meanwhile, Kenyan international midfielder Wanyama has regularly been mentioned as interesting a number of leading clubs, including Manchester United and Arsenal.

"Until anything really happens then they are all Celtic players and I think the manager would ideally like to have them here for a long time but, failing that, then at least until the end of the season."
