Celtic fans react on Twitter to Armstrong display v Inverness
By Matt Farr
Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong put in a man of the match performance in the 4-0 win over Inverness on Wednesday night – and fans on Twitter were in awe.
The 24-year-old had only recently returned to the starting line-up after a brief injury, but he wasted little time in picking up where he left off, which has impressed the Celtic fans.
Taking up arms in an attacking-midfield role, an undeterred Armstrong bossed the final third for the away side, and caused countless problems for Inverness with his movement and passing.
He also netted a goal to cap off the display, scoring a perfectly executed free-kick with just under half-an-hour to play.
Celtic fans were delighted with Armstrong’s overall display in the victory, and took to Twitter to share their praise.

Well done Stuart Armstrong what a performance and a special goal
Armstrong has now contributed 10 goals and six assists from 34 appearances in all competitions for Celtic this term.
He has become a central figure under Brendan Rodgers this season, starting 16 of his 21 Scottish Premiership appearances.
The Inverness result handed them their 22nd-consecutive league victory, and moved Celtic 27 points clear at the top of the division.
