Hoops has already scored 14 goals this season to add to his 22 last season. Considering that he’s missed quite a few games through injury that’s a great return on out £2.2m investment.
Hooper told a Scottish chip paper;
Big game for the bhoy’s tonight when we take on Atletico Madrid who are without doubt a top side but not unbeatable. Celtic showed enough in the second half of the first game to show they are not the best at defending and they can be panicked by quick inter passing when attacked.
The truth is we started poorly in Madrid and as usual shot our selves in the foot by conceding a cheap goal. Overall we were a wee bit unfortunate as I feel we done enough to at get a draw.
