Brendan Rodgers has played a major role in Celtic’s unbeaten domestic run this season and managed to get the best out of his squad.
They are on the verge of clinching the league title and have a strong core of Scottish players at the heart of their success.
The Bhoys midfielder Armstrong will earn his first international cap against Slovenia and it is a reward for his great club form.
The 24-year-old has scored 12 goals and supplied seven assists in 37 appearances across all competitions.
Scotland will be hoping he can emulate that form for the national side as they look to get their qualification bid back on track.
