Celtic striker Gary Hooper has been named the Scottish Premier League Player of the Month for January.
Hooper was in excellent form for Neil Lennon's team, and netted five league goals following the winter break.
The Englishman also scored Celtic's first goal of 2013 in the 1-0 home win over Motherwell on 2 January.
Celtic rejected three bids for Hooper from Norwich during the January transfer window and the player has caught the attention of England boss Roy Hodgson.
Hooper has scored 23 goals for Celtic so far this season, including 13 in the SPL and two in the UEFA Champions League.
