The Irishman, out of contract this summer, reminded the Parkhead fans of his continued worth with two assists for Gary Hooper, before Joe Ledley sealed the club's domestic double with a strike after the break.

Asked after the 3-0 win whether he would be returning to the club for the start of the season, the former Hibs striker said: "I expect to be here, 100 per cent.

"The contract is getting sorted out and I am very confident about it. My agent has been speaking with the club for the last week or two so I am sure something will get sorted."

Hoops manager Neil Lennon described Stokes' performance as one of his best in a Celtic shirt.

"I don't know about that," Stokes added. "I was happy with my performance but the most important thing was the result.

"We dominated the game, played well, worked hard and got the result we wanted.

"We finished on a high and we are all delighted. It couldn't have worked out much better."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
