Celtic manager Neil Lennon has confirmed that striker Gary Hooper has completed his move from Scunthorpe and will join the squad for the Champions League tie against Braga.

The 22-year-old is due to arrive at Glasgow airport on Tuesday morning to meet up with his new team mates before they fly to Portugal.

Hooper is the sixth summer signing of Celtic's new manager Neil Lennon.

Speaking at Glasgow airport, Lennon said: "He will be coming later on.

"There is just a little bit of paperwork we had to smooth over.

"I don't know about playing but he will be in the squad.

"I was pleased to get him, he has been on our radar for quite a while.

"I think we have a good player on our hands, his record is very good.

"It's not just goals, he can play a little bit as well and there were a lot of clubs after his signature."
