Anthony Stokes has today officially left Livingston three weeks after signing and having not kicked a ball for the club.

The striker was brought in to replace Lyndon Dykes who moved to QPR, but the word is he couldn’t adapt to training on a plastic pitch and would be no use to Livingston going forward.

The deal between the two parties have been mutually terminated.

Stokes hasn’t had a proper stable club since leaving Hibernian. A fall out with Neil Lennon at Easter Road led to the striker’s exit; since then he’s turned up in Turkey, Iran and India to play his football but most deals he’s made have ended on a sour note.

The best spell of his career came at Celtic for sure when he was paired up top with Gary Hooper. Livingston are now looking for a new striker and Anthony, a new club. Football is a funny old game.
