'Absolute garbage', 'Howler' - Celtic fans annihilate senior player after clash v Anderlecht

Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to annihilate midfielder Stuart Armstrong for his performance in the 1-0 loss to Anderlecht at Parkhead on Tuesday night.

Brendan Rodgers’ side ensured their spot in the Europa League after Christmas despite falling to a second half own goal by Jozo Simunovic.

The performance of Armstrong, 25, was of a major concern to the Hoops fans who packed the rafters at Celtic Park for what was their final Champions League game of the season.

Armstrong was hooked at half-time by Rodgers, who decided to bring on Olivier Ntcham.

There was an instant difference in the game due to the change as the Bhoys looked like they had much more of a foot-hold against the Belgian champions.

Fans took to social media to blast Armstrong for his outing, with one saying the senior player was “absolute garbage”.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Armstrong has been a mainstay of the Celtic senior side under the charge of Rodgers and was one of their best players last term as they won the domestic treble without a single defeat.

However after a dragged-out contractual situation, the Scotland international is yet to reach the heights of last term.

He has made 27 appearances across all competitions this campaign for the Hoops, scoring three goals and supplying four assists in the process.

In other Celtic news, the Bhoys have suddenly become a key part of Rangers’ search for a new manager.
