Celtic 24-year-old delivers verdict on future after Scotland debut
By Danny Wright
Sunday night was a proud one for Celtic’s Stuart Armstrong as he earned his first senior international cap in Scotland’s 1-0 victory over Slovenia.
The 24-year-old played all 90 minutes and was given a rousing reception by fans and pundits after a memorable display in Gordon Strachan’s midfield.
After the game Armstrong was asked if he has looking forward to more caps with the Tartan Army, but the midfielder asserted that he has remained grounded despite all the potentially ego-boosting talk.
“I don’t like to speculate too much but I’ll keep plugging away at Celtic and see what happens,” said Armstrong, as quoted by the Glasgow Evening Times.
The former Dundee man has been in hot form for the Bhoys this season and many people have been surprised that this was his first appearance for the Scottish national side.

Armstrong has found the net on 12 occasions for the Hoops this season in all competitions and has got himself on the score sheet in all three of his last league outings in which he scored a venomous strike against Rangers in the Old Firm stalemate earlier this month.
He was a regular for the Scotland Under-21s and made 19 appearances for the youth side.
Since joining Celtic, Armstrong has won the Scottish Premiership on two occasions and looks set to make it his third consecutive league title this season.
