Celtic pulling in same direction says Stokes

Celtic striker Anthony Stokes has assured fans that all at the club are pulling in the same direction as they strive to chase down Old Firm rivals Rangers.

The Glasgow pair are again ahead of the rest of the Scottish Premier League pack but the Hoops find themselves 10 points in arrears of their eternal foes.

After scoring twice in the 2-0 win at Inverness Caledonian Thistle on Saturday, Stokes said that all hands were on deck to stop the rot of four straight Rangers titles.

"We're sticking together. We're all there, the gaffer and the backroom staff - we're pulling the same way," he told Celtic's official matchday programme ahead of Wednesday's home meeting with Dunfermline Athletic.

"We just need to bring that bit of consistency into our game as we have shown we're up for the fight.

"I'm sure we'll be confident going into the Dunfermline game but we won't take them lightly.

"They've started the season well and it's going to be a very tough game, so we need to be on top of our game.

"Every team that comes to Celtic Park is up for it and we'll need to perform to our very best to get a result on the day.

"We can't really afford any slip-ups. Winning games breeds confidence and that's what we need to do now by going on a good run."
