FORMER Celtic star Gary Hooper has teamed up with an old friend in Cyprus. 

The striker, 34, has joined Neil Lennon's Omonia Nicosia.

Hooper worked with Lennon during his time at Parkhead.

Now, the pair will work again for the 22/23 campaign ahead.

A club statement reads: "We announce the acquisition of the 34-year-old English striker, Gary Hooper, who played for Wellington Phoenix last season. The cooperation contract is for one year.
