The Saints yesterday completed a reported £7million move for the Scotland midfielder and, like any other signing, went big on announcing him on social media.
That’s included some entertaining videos and a lot of pictures – as well as this video referencing Celtic fans’ Armstrong song.
And no doubt Southampton’s media team will continue to talk about their latest signing.
But they’ve made a very kind gesture this morning by donating to the Celtic Foundation in exchange for using the song.
We’re not sure they actually had to, but responded to a tweet from the Hoops confirming that they’ve donated £100 to the Foundation:

That’s a very kind gesture from Southampton – and just adds to the £7m Celtic will be getting for letting Armstrong go.
He spent three years at Celtic before finally getting the move to the English Premier League that he’s always fancied.
He’ll now join Mark Hughes’ squad and hope they can play a lot better than they did as they narrowly avoided relegation last season.
