Stokes: Celtic cup win banishes memories of Rangers defeat
Anthony Stokes believes Celtic winning through to the semi-finals of the Co-operative Insurance Cup with a 3-2 win against St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park on Wednesday night was the ideal tonic after the Old Firm defeat.
The Irishman said: "We had a chat about Sunday after training and the gaffer said we will draw a line under it and forget about it. It was a massive for the fans and it was a massive game but at the end of the day it's three points and we can't dwell on it.
"We had to respond and the main thing was to get a win and we went away happy. We want to win every competition we play in and so it was a great win. On another night we could have won by four or five but they put us under a bit of pressure. It was a little disappointing the way we let them back in. But we did well at the end, they were putting us under pressure and we stayed strong."
