I want to stay at Celtic, says Stokes

Celtic forward Anthony Stokes has said he wants to earn a new contract with the club and has no desire to leave.

Stokes has suffered injury problems

Stokes has seen his season disrupted by injury problems and is out of contract in the summer, but scored the winner in the Scottish Cup quarter-final victory over St Mirren on Saturday.

He said he had “no intentions” of talking to other clubs interested in signing him, adding: "I'm happy here, and I'm happy in Glasgow.

"I'm enjoying my football - it's been a long few months out and I'm just delighted to be back in the team contributing goals.

"I just love the club. I enjoy being here. Playing every week is all I want. Since I've came here, I've played the majority of games.

“It's been a very hard season - I've had a major injury and been out for six or seven months. But I think I've bounced back in the right way and got myself back in the team and scored goals.”

The Republic of Ireland international said he would move on if no offer of a new deal was forthcoming, but added: “I'd be disappointed, obviously, because I think over the last two or three years I've contributed to the team."
