Lennon throws Celtic forward Stokes a lifeline

Celtic manager Neil Lennon suggests Anthony Stokes could remain at the club past this summer.

It was mooted that the Irish forward would be let go by Lennon at the end of the season but after scoring twice in the 6-2 win over Dundee United on the weekend, Stokes is every chance of winning a new contract to stay at Parkhead.

"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.

"He's a goalscorer. There are aspects of his game he needs to improve on but if he puts his mind to it Anthony can be a very good player and he showed that today."
