Bring Hooper back to Celtic, says Commons

The Scottish midfielder would love to see the Canaires misfit make a return to Parkhead and feels a summer swoop would not be out of the club's financial reach
Celtic midfielder Kris Commons has called for the club to make a summer move for former striker Gary Hooper should Norwich City be relegated on Sunday.

Hooper, 26, quit the Scottish giants only a year ago after sealing a £5 million move to the Canaries but looks set to become a Championship player with relegation almost assured.

Life hasn't been as fruitful for Hooper since making the switch from the Scotland to England, with the normally prolific star only managing to net six Premier League goals for struggling Norwich this season.

And, despite becoming the star man in the wake of Hooper's absence, Commons would like to see the 26-year old return to Celtic Park.

"I had a very strong relationship with him on the park. He is one of the best players I have ever performed alongside," Commons told the Daily Record.

"I don't think it is totally unrealistic that we could get him back one day. Obviously, Lionel Messi would be perfect but I would like us to bring back Hoops.

"It would be magic to have him in our side again. Look at the amount of goals he scored. In addition, his movement and link-up play were second to none. He's a top player and that's why he went to the Premier League.

"I've been lucky enough to play with a lot of superb players and Hoops is up there with the best. It would be great if he returned."
