Celtic striker Anthony Stokes says that he has 'no intention' of leaving the club.

Celtic striker Anthony Stokes has revealed that he is hopeful of agreeing a new contract with the Scottish outfit.

The former Arsenal forward has struggled with injury this season, but scored the winner in Saturday's Scottish Cup quarter-final against St Mirren.

"Listen, I've no intentions of doing that whatsoever. I'm happy here and I'm happy in Glasgow. 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," he told reporters at a press conference.

"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.

"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.

The 24-year-old's current deal expires at the end of the season.
