Former Celtic striker Gary Hooper has dropped another hint over a possible return to the club, The Boot Room report. 

The 31-year-old was released by Sheffield Wednesday at the end of the season and has been linked with a return to Celtic Park, as well as a move to Aston Villa in recent weeks. 

The experienced striker spent three successful years with Celtic between 2010-2013 before leaving the club for Norwich City in a deal worth £5m.

And it seems Hooper is keen on a return to Scotland this summer, after the striker posted a picture of himself in Celtic colours on his Instagram story. 

Twitter user and Celtic fan Danny Watters captured the story of Hooper possibly hinting at a return to the club.

A potential return for Hooper may come down to who is in charge next season. 

Current interim boss Neil Lennon is reportedly keen on signing the forward on a free transfer this summer, however, with the Hoops’ managerial vacancy still yet to be decided, the striker may have to play the waiting game over a possible second Celtic stint.
