Gary Hooper has said that he is enjoying with playing in Celtic. The Parkhead striker believes Neil Lennon’s side have taken a great deal of heart from their performance the last time the two clubs clashed.

Despite being reduced to 10 men in the first-half at Ibrox, when goalkeeper Fraser Forster was sent packing for bringing down Steven Naismith, Celtic emerged with a 2-2 draw.

And Hooper says the way they managed to dominate Rangers with a man less is fresh in the Celtic players’ minds as they prepare for this weekend’s SPL encounter.

He said: “I enjoyed it at Ibrox in the Scottish Cup game. Going down to 10 men so early was a blow but even then we could have won it.
