Gordon: These two Celtic stars have given the whole club a lift

Craig Gordon has had kind words for Celtic new boys Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong.

Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon says that Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong have helped give the whole squad a boost since arriving last month.

Mackay-Steven and Armstrong both joined the Bhoys during the winter transfer window and have made a positive impression during their time at Parkhead.

Unfortunately for the former Dundee United duo their form has not earned international recognition, with the pair both omitted from Scotland's latest squad, but Gordon feels their time will come in the future if they continue to impress.

Mackay-Steven and Armstrong have not been able to play in any of Celtic's most recent fixtures, as they have been cup-tied, but they are available for selection again this weekend when the Bhoys take on their old club, Dundee United, in the league.

The duo will both hope to be included as they have shown their quality whenever called upon by Ronny Deila.

Armstrong's goalscoring instincts from midfield have already been evident, while Mackay-Steven's attacking threat has also been obvious.

It means that they both look to have bright futures at Parkhead and will be hoping to further highlight their class by helping Celtic to three points on Saturday.
