Report: New Celtic signings registered to play Europa League football for Celtic

Celtic signings Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong have been registered in time to play in the Europa League.

The Glasgow Evening Times has reported that new Celtic signings Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong have both been registered to play in the Europa League for the club.

It means the pair are able to feature against Inter Milan when the European competition resumes, should manager Ronny Deila want to include them both in the match day squad.

With deals for both of the new arrivals going through on transfer deadline day earlier this week, there was a small amount of doubt over whether Europa League registration would go through in time, but the paper claims that’s no longer an issue.

Armstrong has even suggested that the chance to play in Europe was a big pulling factor in his decision to move to the club, having watched grand European occasions on TV.

It’s now important that the pair of them settle into life with the Bhoys quickly, because the pressure and weight of expectation on their shoulders will be different to what they’ve already experienced.

They need to give Deila a problem in terms of his team selection by getting themselves into form and that should be enough to see them get a crack at facing Inter Milan.
