Celtic manager Neil Lennon remains convinced that striker Gary Hooper will remain with the club beyond January.

"He will be a Celtic player come 1 February, I'm pretty sure about that" - Neil Lennon
The 24-year-old scored twice in a comfortable 4-0 victory against Dundee United to lift his side a full twelve points clear at the top of the table.

But the Hoops have already dismissed a couple of offers from Norwich City for the former Scunthorpe United marksman who has now netted in excess of seventy goals for the long-way leaders.

"He will be a Celtic player come 1 February, I'm pretty sure about that," Lennon told BBC Scotland. "I don't see any reason why he should be in a rush to go just yet and I don't think he wants to.

"I think he's just getting better and his performance tonight again was of a fantastic level," he added. "He's just a great player and we want him here."

Celtic 2 Hamilton Academical 0

Celtic surge on unopposed at the top of the table after leading goalscorer Moussa Dembele was on target either side of the break against Hamilton Academical.

The 20-year-old Frenchman curled his side ahead on the stroke of half-time before converting a 59th minute penalty after Kieran Tierney was fouled by Massimo Donati.

Winger James Forrest lasted only ten minutes into the contest until being on the end of a heavy challenge and was replaced by Gary Mackay-Steven.
