Commons lauds Celtic team-mate Hooper

Next Story

Kris Commons believes Celtic team-mate Gary Hooper has limitless potential after the striker marked his first Champions League start with a goal in a famous 3-2 victory over Spartak Moscow.

Hooper's first-time finish set Celtic on their way to victory in the Champions League on Tuesday night, their first away victory in the group stages of the competition. Georgios Samaras made his first start since recovering from an elbow injury sustained on international duty with Greece last month and scored a late winner.

However, Lennon, while glad to see his seemingly endless faith in Samaras had been vindicated again, described Hooper's performance as "world class" after his striker had opened the scoring with his seventh goal in four games.
