Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong explained at a press conference ahead of the club’s Champions League match against Qarabag, as covered by the club’s Twitter feed, that he feels he will continue to progress and develop at the club.
Armstrong arrived in a deal alongside Gary Mackay-Steven from Dundee United last winter and is looking to build on the European experience he’s already gained as a Bhoys player.

The Champions League is a step up
While Armstrong did well over the second half of last season, there is a real opportunity for him to embrace the higher quality and higher level of football which is produced by the Champions League.
One of the only ways for any player to progress and become better is by embracing the challenge of a higher quality competition, which represents the chance for players to refine in terms of various elements of their game.
Why it’s important for any Celtic player to constantly adapt
It’s very important that Armstrong, and no member of the Celtic squad, falls complacent because of the club they represent.
Domestically Celtic are a target for any team they come up against and teams will have different ideas over hoe to keep Armstrong quiet in games this season.
If he can show an ability to adapt to and deal with those challenges, he’ll have a good chance of being consistent over an extended period.
