Armstrong speaks of special feeling he's experienced since joining Celtic

Celtic star Stuart Armstrong has identified what he feels is something special at the club.

Celtic star Stuart Armstrong has described the first leg of the Europa League match against Inter Milan as ‘something special’ to the Glasgow Evening Times.

Armstrong appears to be eager to start the game in Italy for the Bhoys tomorrow night, as Ronny Deila’s team look to finish the job with the tie currently level at 3-3.

“To play against a club of that size in a big European night last week was an amazing experience, and to score a goal was incredible,” said Armstrong.

“Playing in the Premiership week in, week out, is something I was used to with Dundee United, but European games are something special. I grew up watching them.”

Whether Armstrong starts or not, the message for Celtic tomorrow night is going to be the same; start well, defend properly and make the most of good chances.

The crowd are going to be right behind Inter Milan, which will encourage the home side to attack and the Bhoys have to be ready to absorb a lot of pressure.

Players in all positions are going to have to do a lot of running over the course of the game to cover for each other and to close the space on Inter’s more creative players.

The boss has a big job to do in terms of keeping everyone focused and trying to take the sting out of the atmosphere.

He can only do so much before the game and the best way for Celtic to reduce the noise levels in the San Siro is to start well and get the first goal.
