Celtic fans react as Stuart Armstrong scores for Southampton again.
It’s taken a while, but Stuart Armstrong is finally starting to look at home at Southampton following his summer exit from Celtic.
Until last week, the 26-year-old midfielder hadn’t scored or set up a goal since his £7 million move from Celtic.
But the Scotland international bagged a brace in last week’s 3-2 defeat away to Fulham, before scoring again in this evening’s visit of Manchester United.
Armstrong was one of Brendan Rodgers’s best players at Celtic, hence the price-tag, and here is how fans of the Parkhead club reacted to his latest goal:
I wish Armstrong was still at Celtic— Owen (@OwenM_17) December 1, 2018
Stuart Armstrong scoring against Man Utd. I’m not crying, you’re crying.— Liam King (@LK95_) December 1, 2018
Hated seeing Armstrong leave Celtic but seeing him be a success down south is good to watch and proved some people wrong— Ross Devlin (@rosscoe92) December 1, 2018
There’s Stuart Armstrong – 3 goals in 2 games. One against Man U now. He wasn’t even a @CelticFC first team regular. Can I suggest most first team Celtic players would be in the top teams down there. Man City/Liverpool one or two.— steven (@weblivz) December 1, 2018

I’m sure a Celtic fan will have a video of Armstrong’s goal up in the next minute or something. What a strike but!— TJDSBlog (@TJDSBlog) December 1, 2018
GOAL FOR ARMSTRONG— John Hodge (@19jhodgkiss) December 1, 2018
GOAL FOR CELTIC
It’s still only three goals in nine Premier League appearances, but there was always going to be a bedding-in period for the former Hoops star.
But hopefully for his and Southampton’s sake he can maintain a standard of scoring fairly regularly over the coming weeks and months.
It’s also great to see Celtic fans wishing him well.
He wasn’t quite one of their own, because Armstrong only joined the Bhoys from Dundee in 2015, but it’s certainly a classy move on their behalf.
