Anthony Stokes is finding his feet with new club Hibernian ahead of his first trip to Ibrox in five years.

Dubliner Stokes has enjoyed his second spell with Hibs as he scored twice in a 5-0 League Cup win over Ayr in midweek, a boost for the 29-year-old as he prepares for Saturday's SPL test away to Rangers.

"He was fantastic - far better than what I expected," said Hibs boss Neil Lennon of Stokes' role in that win over Ayr.

"When you consider that's his first 90 minutes in over a year, I've got to be delighted with his contribution and I'm sure he is as well.

"It was great that he got 90 minutes and got his goals, that is what he is here for. We're playing him in his right position and we think he'll score goals," added Lennon.
