Celtic FC striker Anthony Stokes has signed a new three-year contract with the Scottish champions.

The 25-year-old Republic of Ireland international was out of contract at the end of the season but has now committed his future to the Parkhead club until the summer of 2016.

"I am absolutely delighted and I'm looking forward to the next few seasons," said Stokes, who scored his 50th goal for the Hoops earlier this term. "I knew this was going to be a big season for me because, after missing the majority of last season, I needed to come back strong. Thankfully I've started reasonably well.

"I didn't realise that this season I'd scored my 50th goal. It wasn't something that preyed on my mind," added the former Sunderland AFC and Hibernian FC forward, who began his career with Arsenal FC.
