Young Irish striker bags brace for Celtic

Celtic saw off Scottish Premiere League strugglers Hibernian with an efficient 3-0 win on Saturday early afternoon in the Scottish capital. Celtic never looked in danger and could have had a couple more, as they stretched their lead at the top of the table.

Highlight of the match was Irish striker Anthony Stokes beautiful, half volleyed strike after 50 minutes, which coincidentally added up to his 50th goal in Scottish football.

You can catch the wonder-strike on the video below, which also has his earlier penalty too, which he converted with sublime ease.

Perhaps the young striker's beautifully taken second goal will force himself into Irish manager Gio Trapattoni's plans. There is no denying Stokes eye for goal would benefit this current Irish side.
