Anthony Stokes reacts on Twitter to Celtic's Partick Thistle win

The 26-year-old praised his side's 1-0 victory, which keeps them top of the SPL.

Anthony Stokes was a happy man after SPL leaders Celtic beat Partick Thistle 1-0 last night.

The win was their eighth in succession domestically and the Bhoys forward played the full 90 minutes as Ronny Deila's men stayed top of the league table.

Virgil van Dijk scored a 60th-minute winner for his side, while goalkeeper Craig Gordon's performance also drew plenty of plaudits, especially after the Scot made a vital save late on.

Stokes, meanwhile, took to Twitter after the game in celebration, emphasising the fact that the Hoops earned themselves three points - as their performance was questioned by some observers.

Celtic travel to Motherwell this Saturday in the day's early kick-off, hoping to extend their lead at the summit of the table.

Deila's side are currently three points clear at the top of the SPL and have also qualified for the knockout stages of the Europa League.

Can the Bhoys keep their current form up or will their far-from-perfect performances let them down further down the line?
