Stokes eyeing new Celtic deal

Celtic forward Anthony Stokes is determined to win a new contract with the club.

The Irishman is out of contract in the summer but is planning to produce consistent performances in order to force manager Neil Lennon to offer him an extension.

"Listen, I've no intentions of doing that whatsoever. I'm happy here and I'm happy in Glasgow,” he said of reported plans to depart Parkhead.

"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."
