A number of Celtic fans have suggested Gary Hooper was wrong for leaving the club when he did in the aftermath of his move to Wellington Phoenix.

The striker joined the Hyundai A-League side on a free transfer after leaving Sheffield Wednesday at the end of his contract last season.

And following the move, these Celtic supporters have suggested he has not made the most of his talent throughout his career.

Hooper’s career certainly hasn’t panned out the way he was hoping or indeed expecting it too since leaving Celtic. 

Do you think Hooper would have made the England squad if he stayed at Celtic?



The striker left in an attempt to break into the England senior squad after a prolific spell with the Hoops, but eventually saw those hopes drift away.

Hooper struggled to recreate the form he showed at Celtic with Norwich City and Sheffield Wednesday respectively, and will now be looking to make an impact down under for the Phoenix.
