Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong has thanked Brendan Rodgers for stating he is on course for a Scotland call-up.

The 24-year-old has impressed in recent weeks, scoring and assisting in the 4-0 hammering of Ross County in late October.

Inverness-born Armstrong, who plays on the left-side of midfield, is yet to earn a Scotland call-up and was not named for the World Cup qualifier against England.

Nonetheless, the Scotsman was grateful towards his club manager for providing such high praise on his recent displays.

“It’s very complimentary and I’m thankful to him for making those comments,” said Armstrong, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

“I just want to keep working and learning and keep improving on my performances. That’s what I aim to do for the future.”

Armstrong has made 16 Premiership, Champions League and League Cup appearances for the Bhoys this season, scoring two goals and assisting one.

He played the full match as the Hoops picked up a valuable point against Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach on Tuesday night.

Armstrong’s most memorable moment this season is scoring in the 5-1 thumping of Old Firm rivals Rangers in September.

Now, he must prepare for a fixture against Inverness on Saturday afternoon, as Rodgers side aim to extend their nine-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership.
