Gary Hooper: Set to stay at Parkhead

The Scottish champions rejected three bids from Norwich for their top scorer, who has 23 goals so far this season.

Reports on deadline day claimed fourth and fifth offers had been tabled by the Canaries in an attempt to test Celtic's resolve.

However, the Hoops were determined to hold onto one of their key players ahead of their Champions League last-16 meeting with Juventus.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon even took to his official Twitter account on Thursday night to clarify the situation, as the transfer deadline edged closer.

He tweeted: "Contrary to reports there have been no fresh bids for Gary and even if there are they will be rejected..he is NOT for sale."

ou spend £200 million in one year and you say 3 years to win the title, I don't think the Man U board signed you to win the title in 3 years after shelling out that sort of cash. Spending that sort of money you should be challenging for the title in this season, not getting an early excuse in to try appeasing the fans and board.
