EX-CELT HEADS FOR TURKISH MINNOWS

0

FORMER Celtic striker Anthony Stokes is on the move again – this time to a Turkish SECOND-TIER club, Adana Demirspor.

The 30-year-old ex-Republic of Ireland international will undergo a medical tomorrow before completing the two-season deal, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

Stokes is now a free agent following a dispute over unpaid salary at his previous club, Iranian outfit Tractor Sazi.

The much-travelled frontman arrived at Parkhead in a £1million switch from Hibs in 2010 when Neil Lennon was in his first stint in charge.

Ronny Deila allowed him to return to Easter Road on loan for the second part of the 2015/16 season and the Dublin-born forward scored two goals in the Edinburgh side’s 3-2 Scottish Cup Final win over Mark Warburton’s Ibrox team.

Brendan Rodgers opted against taking up a 12-month option on the player’s contract and he moved to Blackburn Rovers before Lennon brought him back for an ill-fated third spell at Hibs.

He moved to Greek team Apollon Smyrni in February 2018 before going to Iran.

Turkey now beckons for the forward who kicked off his career at Arsenal in 2005. He was also signed by Roy Keane for Sunderland in 2007 and has also had loan spells at Falkirk, Sheffield United and Crystal Palace.
