'Stinker' - Celtic fans urge Rodgers to axe midfielder after win v Hibernian

By James Black

Celtic sealed a place in next month’s Scottish League Cup final with a win over Hibernian at Hampden Park on Saturday – but fans weren’t happy with Stuart Armstrong’s display.

The midfielder started in a deeper role alongside Scott Brown after making his comeback from injury in the midweek Champions League loss against Bayern Munich.

Armstrong struggled to impose himself on the game before being replaced by Tom Rogic in the second-half and now fans are urging Brendan Rodgers to axe the Scot from his starting line-up in the future.

The former Dundee United midfielder had a fantastic season last term but has failed to carry that form into this season despite signing a new contract.

Doubles from Mikael Lustig and Moussa Dembele secured the Hoops’ place in next month’s final despite Celtic not being at their best.

Fans were left wondering what Armstrong needs to do to get dropped as he continues to make the starting XI despite poor performances.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Next up for the Hoops is a trip to Pittodrie to face Aberdeen on Wednesday night.

Both sides side level on points at the top of the Scottish Premiership and will be looking to create a gap as they go head-to-head for the first times this season.

Armstrong may find himself out of the side for the trip north and fans seem like they will be delighted if that happens.
