Celtic striker Anthony Stokes can’t wait to get back into the action after effectively being given four months to rescue his career with the Scottish champions.

“I’ve just got to work as hard as I possibly can and do what I can when I get an opportunity” – Anthony Stokes

The 24-year-old managed just under half-an-hour during the midweek friendly victory against Steaua Bucharest but is without a competitive appearance since August. However, having now recovered from ankle trouble the former Hibernian marksman hopes that situation will soon change and that he can earn himself a new deal with the club.

“It’s going to be difficult to get back into the team,” Stokes conceded to the Evening Herald. “There’s always going to be competition for places at a club like Celtic.

“I’ve just got to work as hard as I possibly can and do what I can when I get an opportunity in games,” he added. “There’s a lot of competition for places, a few new strikers have come in but I’m looking forward to the challenge and hoping that it brings out the best in me.”
