Anthony Stokes: Hoping to win a new deal at Celtic

The former Arsenal and Sunderland man, who has struggled with injury this season, is out of contract at Parkhead in the summer.

Stokes, who scored the winner in Saturday's Scottish Cup quarter-final against St Mirren, insists he is happy at Celtic and that extending his stay in Glasgow would be his top choice rather than talking to other interested clubs.

Asked about discussing his options with interested clubs, Stokes said: "Listen, I've no intentions of doing that whatsoever. 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 come here I've played the majority of games week in, week out. That's all I've been looking for. 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. That's all I can really do.

"If there isn't an offer I'd move on. That's football. It happens to managers every week and it's the same with players.

"I wouldn't let it affect me. I'd be disappointed obviously because I think over the last two or three years I've contributed to the team. I just want to keep working as hard as I can and keep improving as a player."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

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.
