Stuart Armstrong impressed by Scott Brown's will to win

Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong has underlined how much Scott Brown just wants to win.

Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong has suggested in the Glasgow Evening Times that teammate Scott Brown has the biggest will to win at the club.

Armstrong has been impressed by his captain’s determination, which has played a big part in this season, simply stating “everyone loves to win, but especially him,” when quizzed about Brown’s effect over the team.

Brown is a very charismatic and aggressive player who likes to set the example for the rest of the team to follow.

He was one of the players who was visibly distraught by the controversial handball incident which led to the team’s Scottish Cup exit at the hands of Inverness last weekend.

As a result, he seemed to approach the game against Dundee last night with a mentality of ‘we are not going to lose this game by any means’.

It’s important that manager Ronny Deila has that sort of player in his team because it reduces the chance of a prolonged difficult period, whenever the team suffers a setback.

Brown would have played a key part in helping Armstrong settle in at the club, which is another good example of a key role he plays in the squad and he’s also been involved in things with the Development Squad this season.

The Daily Mail reported pictures of him drunk on a night out shortly before the club’s League Cup final earlier in the season, but when it comes down to a reliable player for a big match, there are few better in the current setup.

He knows what it takes to win and he knows what it takes for his team to be competitive in different matches against opponents that use different styles and he should be lifting the Scottish Premiership title before the end of May.
