Career

Cooper joined his local club Hull City at the under-12 level in 2002. He was a member of the young squad that defeated Colchester 3-0 in the Football League Young Alliance Cup Final, scoring the first goal but later was sent off for deliberate handball.

During the 2007-08 season, he was assigned the number 37 jersey but did not participate as the Tigers won promotion to the Premier League for the first time in their history. He made his debut for the club as a 16-year-old in the League Cup against Swansea City on August 26, 2008, and was an unused substitute in their Premier League defeat to Wigan Athletic four days later after signing his first professional contract. A year later, on September 26, 2009, he made his Premier League debut against Liverpool in a 6-1 loss at Anfield.

Cooper’s opportunities at Hull were restricted over the next three years, and he had a brief time on loan at Carlisle United and Huddersfield Town in 2011. Following an injury to Jack Hobbs, he briefly returned to the first team under Nick Barmby in March 2012 to create a good combination with James Chester for the rest of the season. Barmby was succeeded by the new manager’s son Alex when he left for Steve Bruce in the summer of 2012.

Cooper was qualified to represent both England and Scotland since he was born in Kingston upon Hull and his paternal grandfather was born in Bo’ness, West Lothian. During his tenure with Hull City’s development squad, he was elected to represent Scotland, making his debut at the under-17 level in March 2008 before moving on to play for the under-19s in 2009.

Cooper was called up to the senior Scotland team for the first time on 10 March 2016 for a friendly against Denmark, but he would have to wait more than three years to make his debut in a 2-1 loss to Russia on 6 September 2019. In 2020, he became a regular for Scotland, playing 120 minutes against Israel in the UEFA Euro 2020 play-off semi-final, which Scotland won 5-3 on penalties following a 0-0 draw. He missed the final against Serbia due to a muscle injury, which Scotland won on penalties to qualify for Euro 2020, their first major tournament since France 98. Cooper started Scotland’s opening game of the match, a 2-0 loss to the Czech Republic, at Hampden Park.
