The 25-year-old netted twice in the first half at Hampden Park on Sunday to set Celtic on the way to a 3-0 Scottish Cup final win and the double.
The two goals also took Hooper through the 30 mark for the season for the Clydesdale Bank Premier League champions.
"It was a great win in the end and we're delighted with the double," said the Englishman.
"This, getting to the last 16 of the Champions League, winning the league, and scoring 31 goals, I'm at the top of my career.
"At the start of the season my aim was to beat last year's goals total and I did that two games ago. I was unlucky not to get to 20 in the league but I wanted to get past 30 overall and I managed that.
"This feels even better than the first time we won the Scottish Cup two years ago because we did this one in style.
"We've also got the league win and the Champions League run behind us as well so this has been my best season at the club.
"Playing like that, like we did at Hampden, really topped it off."
