Anthony Stokes (born 25 July 1988 in Dublin, Ireland) is an Irish professional footballer who plays as a striker for Scottish Premier League club Celtic.

Stokes began his career with Arsenal, but established himself with a successful loan spell with Falkirk in 2006, scoring 14 goals in 16 SPL games. Stokes then signed for Sunderland in a £2m deal, but he struggled to hold down a place in the Sunderland first team. He moved back to Scottish football when Hibernian signed him for £500,000 in August 2009. Where he again enjoyed success in the SPL, scoring over 20 goals in his only full season with Hibs. Stokes moved to boyhood heroes Celtic shortly after the start of the following season, for a fee of around £1.2 million.
