Celtic have today accepted a bid from QPR for star striker Gary Hooper.
Now for me, if Hooper chooses to make the move I cannot help but think that it is a huge step down for the player. As I am from Scunthorpe, I managed to watch Hooper play for 2-3 seasons when he was at my local team. He was top goal scorer for the club in each season and proved his worth at Championship level. Since moving to Celtic he has again proved himself, scoring 30+ goals in each of the last 2 seasons … also scoring in the Champions League.
In my honest opinion he has been very unlucky not to get an England call up. If playing for Celtic and scoring in the Champions League doesn’t get you a call up then moving to QPR in the Championship defiantly won’t.
Can’t help but feel Gary Hooper needs to move to a Premiership club to keep his great progress as a striker going.
I hate to say this as a Gary Hooper supporter but it would show a lack of ambition should this transfer go ahead.
What are your opinions on Hooper’s future?
