Celtic moved 12 points clear at the top of the SPL table after dominating from almost the first kick at Parkhead, striker Gary Hooper scoring twice after the club turned down a second approach from Norwich.

Victor Wanyama and substitute Scott Brown were also on target for the Hoops who, put a smile on Lennon's face with the fluidity of some of their football after almost falling behind early on.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
