The Irishman is out of contract soon, but he reminded the Parkhead fans of his talents as he twice set up Gary Hooper for first-half goals before midfielder Joe Ledley sealed the domestic double with a strike after the break in a 3-0 victory over Hibernian.
Afterwards, the former Hibs striker was asked about whether he would be returning to the club for the start of the season and said: "I expect to be here, 100%.
"The contract is getting sorted out and I am very confident about it.
"My agent has been speaking with the club for the last week or two so I am sure something will get sorted."
Hoops manager Neil Lennon described Stokes' performance as one of his best in a Celtic shirt, but the striker said: "I don't know about that. I was happy with my performance but the most important thing was the result.
"We dominated the game, played well, worked hard and got the result we wanted.
"We finished on a high and we are all delighted. It couldn't have worked out much better."
