Shameful ex-Celtic star Anthony Stokes shows off expensive Rolex as he continues to dodge Scottish arrest warrant in Ireland
BRAZEN Anthony Stokes sports a flashy Rolex watch during the holiday season in Ireland – as he continues to dodge a Scottish arrest warrant for his arrest.
The former Celtic ace, 33, showed off his expensive watch, which looked like the brand’s Â£ 10,000 Gmt-Master II.
His Instagram snap comes more than seven months after he was convicted by the Hamilton Sheriff Court of bombarding his ex-girlfriend Eilidh Scott’s father with abusive texts – then failed to show up for conviction.
Stokes tagged Dublin jewelers Weir & Sons in the social media post going online ahead of Christmas.
The company page claims to be “the destination Irish family jeweler since 1869”.
A buddy seemed impressed with the forward’s bling, saying, “Not bad buddy.”
Stokes replied, “Must be half decent when you have his and hers, brother.”
The former Ireland international was also pictured wearing it as he celebrated the big day on December 25.

We recounted in May how Stokes was convicted of breaking a non-harassment order by texting George Scott – the father of his ex Eilidh, 30.
Sheriff Allan McKay subsequently ordered the arrest warrant.
The former Hibs, Falkirk and Sunderland star’s memoir claimed he was on trial for Ireland’s Shamrock Rovers team, but a deal fell apart.
On the day the warrant was issued, Stokes posted a selfie and wrote: “Bad news?”
It is understood that the order only applies to the UK.
Shamed Stokes admitted to harassing Eilidh with abusive texts during a seven-month campaign between 2018 and 2019.
He also owes ex-Elvis impersonator Anthony Bradley, 57, Â£ 200,000 after beating him in a row for a spilled drink at a Dublin bar in 2013.
Last month we shared how he bragged about having a pair of Â£ 300 Adidas Yeezy sneakers.
The trendy shoes are made in collaboration with Kanye West.
