Livingston FC is thrilled to announce the signing of Irish striker Anthony Stokes on a one-year-deal following his departure from Persian Gulf Pro League champions, Persepolis in Iran.
Stokes is a well-known face in the Scottish game having played for Falkirk, Celtic and three spells at Hibernian. South of the border, the 32-year-old has played for Arsenal, Sheffield United, Sunderland, Crystal Palace and most recently, Blackburn Rovers.
Away from the UK, Anthony has also played in Greece, Turkey and Iran – with the latter being where he last played with Persepolis having joined in January of this year however, the COVID-19 outbreak put an end to that spell.
In his time in Scotland, Stokes can count 4 Premiership titles, 3 Scottish Cups (2 with Celtic and 1 with Hibs), 1 League Cup, 3 Young Player of the Month Awards and a Goal of the Season award.
With 136 career goals in Scotland alone, it’s safe to say that our new number 9 certainly has an eye for goal!
Welcome to Livingston, Anthony!
