The former Dundee United midfielder endured a bit of a disappointing campaign last season after being deployed mainly as a left midfielder under previous manager Ronny Deila.
However, the arrival of Brendan Rodgers has reignited Armstrong’s career at Celtic Park and he’s looked like a player transformed in the last few weeks.

After ousting Nir Bitton from the starting line-up, Armstrong has gone from strength to strength, as evidenced by his performance against Motherwell.
Celtic trailed 2-0 at half-time, but a goal and an assist for Patrick Roberts from Armstrong helped kick-start the Hoops’ comeback – with the Premiership champions going on to win 4-3.
Tom Rogic may have got the winner, but there’s no doubting who Celtic fans saw as the hero today:

It does beggar belief that Armstrong hasn’t been given an opportunity by Scotland manager Gordon Strachan – surely it can’t be too long now?
What do you think of his run of form at the moment?
