Gary Hooper: Looking to bounce back for Celtic

Striker Gary Hooper (hamstring), defender Thomas Rogne (calf) and winger James Forrest (groin) missed Saturday's SPL clash at Aberdeen, but look set to fly on Monday to Portugal.

Skipper Scott Brown also looks like winning his fitness battle after an ongoing hip problem, while fellow midfielder Joe Ledley is fighting a knock he picked up in last weekend's draw with St Johnstone.

Concerning the Pittodrie clash at the weekend, Lennon said: "Gary won't make it. We are hoping he will start training on Sunday. Lassad Nouioui is back in the squad. Rogne will hopefully train on Sunday.

"Forrest, at first we thought it was a hamstring strain, but it looks like he has damaged a nerve. We are hoping that will settle down and he can travel with us on Monday.

"Brown and Ledley are doubts for Saturday but they should make Tuesday."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
