Celtic could face further frustration over Stuart Armstrong sale

Stuart Armstrong continued his recent impressive form for Southampton with a goal in the draw against Manchester United, so could Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers live to regret the sale of him?

The 26-year-old left Parkhead in the summer for a move to the Premier League and isn’t the first Bhoys player to do that over the years.

He’s had to adjust to English football slowly with the Saints, but has forced his way into Mark Hughes’ XI and is beginning to find his feet.

The central midfielder has scored three goals in his last two Premier League games, which included a low driven shot past David De Gea on Saturday in a 2 -2 draw with Manchester United.

 

Celtic still have plenty of quality in midfield without the Scotland international and don’t have a reason to be frustrated with his exit, as they continue to be the dominant force in their homeland.

But perhaps the fact that he departed for just £7million (BBC) to join Southampton could be difficult to comprehend.

Armstrong has a long way to go to prove he’s a bargain at £7million, but if he becomes a regular goalscorer from midfield for Southampton then he will certainly fit that bill.

Celtic need only look at former player Virgil van Dijk to see they are perhaps shortchanged when it comes to moving on their star names.

It’s extremely early days into Armstrong’s stint in England, but his price tag will soar if his recent form is extended.
