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.

The club said he struggled to adapt to training on the plastic pitch.
Stokes was unable to feature for Livi after signing this summer.
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.
