Celtic striker Anthony Stokes admits they need to 'stand up and be counted' ahead of this weekend's Old Firm showdown.
Sunday's derby clash has been overshadowed by events off the pitch, following news that parcel bombs intended for Celtic boss Neil Lennon were intercepted at Royal Mail sorting offices.
The Ibrox game is being billed as a possible title decider with Celtic currently trailing Rangers by a point, with a game in hand.
Stokes insists he is fully focused on the Rangers game, so much so that he does not even know who Celtic play after their city rivals.
"To be honest, I don't even know who we're playing after Rangers," Stokes told the Daily Record.
"I'm not looking too far into the future because we take each game as it comes.
"We are completely focused on winning our next game and see where that leaves us. This is the home stretch and we must stand up and be counted."
