Scott Brown pleased with Celtic's January transfer business

Celtic captain Scott Brown has been pleased with the impact that Stuart Armstrong and Gary Mackay-Steven have made at the club.

Celtic captain Scott Brown has told the club's official website that he thinks Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong were extremely good additions for the Bhoys.

Armstrong and Mackay-Steven were both recruited from Dundee United in the January transfer window, and Brown has been impressed by the duo's initial impact at Parkhead.

The pair have both made 14 appearances for Celtic and Brown believes that they have added quality to the squad. 

The combative midfielder says that Armstrong and Mackay-Steven both helped the side improve during the second-half of the season and he is hoping that they can progress even further next year. 

“We have a solid, settled squad and everyone seems to be enjoying their football, and hopefully we can keep that for as long as we possibly can,” he said. “We brought in Stuart and Gaz (Mackay-Steven) as well and they definitely helped us improve in the last half of the season.”

Armstrong and Mackay-Steven have already become key members of the Bhoys' team and there is great excitement around their respective futures at Parkhead.

They have offered the Hoops added creativity and pace going forward, while Armstrong is also capable of helping out with the defensive side of the game.

It means that the pair are likely to mature into two of Ronny Deila's star turns over the years ahead and they will both be hoping to build on their positive starts, after Brown's praise today.
