Gary Mackay-Steven’s response when asked about competition with Stuart Armstrong

Celtic Stands

Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong both joined Celtic from Scottish Premiership rivals Dundee United in January 2015.

Celtic winger Gary Mackay-Steven has been quoted as saying by the club’s official Twitter page that he is not concerned with competition from teammate Stuart Armstrong.

Mackay-Steven and midfielder Armstrong both joined Celtic from Scottish Premiership rivals Dundee United in January 2015.

The Scotland international winger has played down suggestions that he has to compete with his 23-year-old compatriot for a place in the Bhoys’ starting lineup.

Celtic are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 35 points from 14 matches.

The Bhoys are six points clear of second-place Heart of Midlothian and are set to win the league title in the Scottish top flight yet again.

The Hoops will return to league action on Saturday afternoon when they take on Kilmarnock at Celtic Park.

Celtic will head into the game on the back of a 4-1 victory over Ross County away from home in the Scottish Premiership.

The Glasgow-based outfit will be heavy favourites to win against Kilmarnock, and it will be a surprise if they slip up.
