QPR to bid for Celtic’s star striker

Updated: October 14, 2011

Queens Park Rangers will bid £7m for Celtic’s Gary Hooper as Neil Warnock identifies the need to bring a reliable goal scorer to the club after his side have struggled to adapt to life in the top league.

23 year old Hooper has impressed at Celtic, scoring 20 goals in 23 appearances last season and starting brightly this season with four in the opening eight games.

Hooper signed for the Bhoys from Scunthorpe United last summer in a deal worth £2.5m and Warnock believes that a bid of around £7m would be enough to tempt Neil Lennon to part with his main goal threat.

The Scottish side are also looking at bringing in some attacking talent in January and are currently in talks with James McFadden.
