Celtic striker Anthony Stokes has welcomed the competition new signing Teemu Pukki will bring to the forward line.

Stokes scored his 50th goal for the Hoops with a late free-kick to seal a 1-0 victory over Dundee United, with Pukki looking on from the main stand at Tannadice.

The Irishman admits he is comfortable with the situation at Celtic, as he looks to extend his contract with the Scottish Champions.

He said: "I haven't really seen much of the new signings to be honest but the scouting system here has been very successful over the last few years so I am no doubt they will add a lot of competition and quality to the squad.

"At a club like this, it always happens. There are always players coming in and competition is good for everyone, it keeps everyone on their toes and I'm no different.

"My agent has been in touch with Celtic and we are waiting on them coming back. I am sure it will sort itself out.

"I love the club, they are a great bunch of lads and there is nothing not to love. I was delighted with 50 goals but the result was the most important thing."
