Anthony Stokes: Scored twice in the 6-2 victory over Dundee United

Stokes was disciplined by Celtic after several off-field incidents earlier this season, and it was thought that Lennon would allow the player to leave the club during the summer.

However, after the striker's performance in the 6-2 thrashing of the Terrors on Saturday, Lennon indicated that Stokes could yet earn a new deal at the club.

"It's up to Anthony. If he keeps playing like that it's not a difficult decision," Lennon said.

"I have always liked him and he's an important player.

The goals were Stokes' second and third of the season in a campaign that has seen him only start three league matches.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
