'Makes the game look easy' - Rangers fans rave about Celtic player after win v Malta

By Harry Sykes

Scotland fans took to Twitter to rave about Stuart Armstrong for his performance in the team’s World Cup qualifier win against Malta on Monday night.

The attacking midfielder following up his impressive display in Friday night’s triumph at Lithuania with another polished performance as Gordon Strachan’s side secured their second win in four days with a 2-0 triumph at Hampden Park.

Goals from Christophe Berra and Leigh Griffiths enabled Scotland to keep alive their hopes of a place in the qualifier play-offs ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Armstrong was one of six players selected by Strachan in the starting XI from Brendan Rodgers’ all-conquering Celtic team.

The Tartan Army were impressed with the display of the playmaker, who was used in his favourite central attacking midfield role.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Scotland’s win has taken their points tally to 14 from eight qualifying matches.

Slovakia’s 2-1 defeat to England means Strachan’s side are only one point adrift of the second team in Group F.

But Slovenia’s hammering of Lithuania leaves Scotland fourth in the group on goal difference.

In other Celtic news, Rangers would storm to the SPL title if they had been successful in their deadline-day pursuit of a £45,000-a-week striker.
