Stuart Armstrong was undoubtedly one of Celtic‘s most impressive performers last season but the club’s supporters are now starting to worry that his top-quality displays could lead to a move down south.
The last calendar year has really been one to savour for Armstrong, who cemented himself in the Scotland starting XI, as well as playing a vital role in the Hoops winning a domestic treble without losing a solitary match.
Armstrong managed to notch an eye-catching 17 goals during the last campaign, leading to speculation that Southampton could be tempted into making a bid for the 25-year-old.
To add to Celtic supporters’ worries, Armstrong is out of contract in 12 months’ time, and talk of a renewal has seemingly gone quiet.
It’s all getting a bit too much for some fans:

What do you think of all he speculation?
Could Armstrong really be heading for a new career in the English Premier League? Is he ready for such a step?
