scored a stunning goal on his debut for Tractor Tabiz against Nassaji Mazandaran.

It was the striker’s first goal of 2018 but almost worth the wait as he found the net with a low 30 yard drive to earn his side a point in a 1-1 draw.

Stokes joined the Iranian side last month in the latest episode of his nomadic career.

A year ago the former Celtic striker linked up with Neil Lennon at Hibs but after a couple of disciplinary issues his contract was mutually terminated in January.

Next stop was a brief spell with Greek side Apollon Smirnis but after just four matches he returned to the UK where he spent some time training with St Mirren in pre-season.

Stokes won four SPL titles at Celtic but was released in 2016 when Brendan Rodgers declined to take up a years option on his contract.
