Armstrong thankful for faith Celtic

Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong says that he is grateful for the opportunities sent his way by Brendan Rodgers this season after netting in the 3-0 win over Hamilton.

The 24-year-old joined Celtic, who are priced at 1.01 to win the Premiership, in 2015 and although he struggled for game-time under Ronny Deila, he appears to be a favourite of new boss Rodgers.

The midfielder has been heavily involved this term and further enhanced his reputation with a goal in the 3-0 triumph over Hamilton on Christmas Eve.

Armstrong added the final goal of the afternoon as the Bhoys maintained their 14-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

The former Dundee United man was primarily used on the left flank under Deila but he has thrived in a central midfield role under Rodgers.

Following a strong performance on Saturday, Armstrong was quick to heap praise on Rodgers for having so much trust in his abilities.

Armstrong said: “I owe a lot to the manager for everything he has done since he came here for me personally and the team, which is to really enjoy life at Celtic in that central position.

“I definitely have a lot to thank him for. “You want to score and I don’t care how they go in, as long as somebody is putting the ball in the net.

“But obviously from a personal point of view, scoring goals is always nice to help the team and when they go in like that, it’s always that bit nicer.”
