Shamrock Rovers manager Stephen Bradley says he is fully aware of the situation surrounding former Celtic and Hibs striker Anthony Stokes, who is training with the League of Ireland side.

Stokes is well-known in Scottish football for stints with Celtic and Hibs, winning silverware at both clubs, alongside spells with Falkirk and Livingston. A judge sitting in Hamilton issued a warrant for the striker’s arrest after he failed to turn up at a scheduled court hearing on Friday.

The 32-year-old played in the midweek Shamrock Rovers friendly with Cabinteely. Bradley said of the former Celtic and Hibs man (IM): “No, I’m well aware of what’s going on behind the scenes.

“Like I said the other day, Anthony is having a look at us, we’re having a look at Anthony. There’s nothing more than that. When I spoke to Anthony, it was about coming in and seeing where both were. It’s not something where either has committed to anything. Let’s have a look at each other and see where we are.”
