Celtic boss Neil Lennon has confirmed that the club have rejected a bid from Norwich City for striker Gary Hooper.

The Canaries were reported to have made a £5m bid for Hooper on Thursday, with Lennon revealing on Friday the offer had been turned down.

Lennon said: “There has been a bid. We are very disappointed it has been made public knowledge. We do our business as privately as possible.

“We don’t want any of our top players going, and Gary comes into that bracket.”

However, Lennon is bracing himself for a second bid from Chris Hughton.

“We had discussions with his representatives this morning and we are waiting to hear back from them.

“Our case is simple - you are not going. He has a year and a half on his contract and he’s a Celtic player.”
