Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster is sure that striker Gary Hooper will remain with the club until at least the end of the season.

"I'm confident he will see out the rest of the season at least" - Fraser Forster
Manager Neil Lennon has already confirmed that a couple of bids from Norwich City were turned down following the free-scoring 24-year-old claiming his 21st goal of the campaign at the weekend.

And Forster believes the lure of playing in the last sixteen of the Champions League against Juventus next month should be more than enough to keep Hooper exactly where he is.

"Hoops might have his personal reasons but club-wise he has a lot to look forward to for at least the next six months," Forster told the Daily Record, reports the Sporting Life. "Not many people reach the last 16 of the Champions League and it might be the one and only time that someone gets to do that in his career.

"Hoops and I are in similar situations but he has been a fantastic servant for the club and I'm confident he will see out the rest of the season at least," he added.
