Celtic striker Anthony Stokes has claimed that the Scottish side will leave the Champions League with their heads held high.

The SPL champions play Barcelona on Wednesday knowing that they are out of the competition for this season.

But the goalscorer has insisted that his men will look to end their campaign on a high.

"That’s the aim in every game – we go out with the attitude that we can win and get something from the game,” he told the club’s official website.

“It will be no different, and we obviously want to go out and show we can still compete in Europe, and that the heads haven´t gone down even if qualification is out of the question. 

"Barcelona are like ourselves, they try and go out and win every game. They are one of the best teams in the world so regardless of the team they field or the formation, it´s going to be a difficult game. 

"But we will have to prepare for it like any other game, go out with the right attitude and try and get a result.

"It´s always going to be a special occasion playing against Barcelona as they are one of the top sides in the world and we will be going there trying to get a good result. .

"There always is something to play for. You always want to go out and try do as well as you possibly can. It will be a tough game going away from home over there.

“But we will go out there with the attitude of winning the game."
