By Dominic Toner

Fans were impressed on Twitter with Celtic ace Stuart Armstrong during his Scotland debut against Slovenia on Sunday night.

The 24-year-old was handed his senior debut for his country in the 1-0 victory against Slovenia in a World Cup qualifier, with Chris Martin scoring a late winner in the 88th minute.

The central midfielder lined up alongside five other Celtic teammates, with Craig Gordon, Kieran Tierney, Scott Brown, James Forrest, Stuart Armstrong and Leigh Griffiths also in the starting XI.

Scotland’s victory boosted their hopes of qualifying the World Cup, but they remain six points adrift of table toppers England.

Fans highlighted the performance of Armstrong and feel that he slotted in perfectly to the side on his international debut.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Armstrong was rewarded by Scotland for his fantastic form this season for Celtic, where he has helped them become unbeaten domestically.

The Bhoys manager Brendan Rodgers deserves great credit for the midfielder’s progress as he has transformed his game completely.

He has been renowned as a left winger during his career, but Rodgers has played him as an attacking midfielder through the centre this campaign.

Armstrong has made 37 appearances this season across all competitions, scoring 12 goals and supplying seven assists.

The playmaker has thrived in his central role this season and now looks set to be heavily involved in the national team set-up.

In other Celtic news, Ronny Deila has shared why he didn’t pick a Rodgers favourite.
