Anthony Stokes has refuted talk he could quit Celtic over Sunday's Co-operative Insurance Cup snub against Rangers.
The former Hibernian man was an unused substitute in their extra-time defeat to Gers, with manager Neil Lennon opting to utilise the likes off Ki Sung-yong, Glen Loovens and Paddy McCourt off the bench.
His father and agent reportedly responding by saying the striker wanted out after being left fuming by Lennon's decision not to give him a chance to salvage the match.
However, Stokes has denied speculation that he wants to quit the Parkhead giants, stating that he is not leaving the club for anyone else.
"I don't know where this story's come from, but it wasn't exactly the first thing I wanted to see this morning. It's as simple as this, I'm going nowhere," he wrote on his Twitter account.
