Striker Anthony Stokes believes he has improved his overall game despite a lower goal tally this season.

"I just haven't scored as many goals as I would have liked" - Anthony Stokes
The Republic of Ireland international has scored only fifteen times so far and currently trails leading marksman Kris Commons by a dozen. He previously reached the twenty-goal mark in each of the past three seasons, the first of which was at Hibernian,

"I was on fire at the start of the season, and then I went through a spell when I just couldn't buy a goal," Stokes told the Daily Record. "But the performances were there, I felt like I was playing well and bringing a lot to the team, but I just haven't scored as many goals as I would have liked.

'In the last season or two the gaffer has asked me to become more of a team player and I think I have shown that this season," he added. "I actually kind of prefer it in a way, you get to see a bit more of the ball and get to make things happen."

Celtic 4 Aberdeen 1

Celtic surged to the top of the Scottish Premiership with a 4-1 victory against Aberdeen at Celtic Park.

Leigh Griffiths' early opener was soon cancelled out by Adam Rooney, but James Forrest restored the home advantage ahead of the break.

However, the champions were forced to wait until the closing stages when Scott Sinclair converted an 87th minute penalty after Mark Reynolds was sent-off.

Midfielder Tom Rogic then curled a delightful free-kick in the final minute.
