Celtic striker Gary Hooper has rejected speculation that he could set for a move back to England.

The likes of Newcastle and Leicester have been credited with an interest in the former Scunthorpe hit-man.

However, Hooper insists he is going nowhere and is settled in Scotland with Celtic.

"There's nothing on that," Hooper said of the transfer rumours. "I'm happy up here, I'm settled, I've got a house up here.

"I'm focusing on winning games, every game. That's the main thing - to take it from there."

Olympic ambition

23-year-old Hooper also revealed his desire to play at next summer's 2012 London Olympics.

Hooper, who was called up to the England Under 21 squad under Stuart Pearce, admits he would jump at the chance of representing Great Britain at the Olympics.

"I'm from somewhere not far from the Olympic Stadium at all so it would be nice to play there," added Hooper. "It would be a good stage and it would be great to play with all the family there. So, yes, that would be good.

"It's a massive event, massive. It would be nice to be part of that."
