Neil McCann believes that Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong is the outstanding talent at the club.
The 24-year-old has become a crucial player for the Bhoys this season and has been rejuvenated by the summer arrival of manager Brendan Rodgers.
He has been transformed into a central midfielder this season and that has helped him become a main goal threat for the team.
Celtic preserved their unbeaten league run this season with a 1-1 draw against Old Firm rivals Rangers on Sunday and it was Armstrong who opened the scoring with a striker from outside the box.
Former Rangers midfielder McCann has described Armstrong as the “outstanding talent” at the Scottish giants and was praising his attributes.
“Stuart Armstrong for me has been the outstanding talent at Celtic,” McCann said, as quoted by Sky Sports. “He’s got a rolls royce engine, he can go from front to back in the blink of an eye, never looks as if he’s sprinting he just drifts past people and there’s an intelligence about Stuart.”
Armstrong was called up to the Scotland national side on Monday and could earn a debut cap for his country agains either Canada or Slovenia.
The midfielder has been one of the standout performers for the Bhoys, despite not receiving the same attention as the likes of Moussa Dembele and Scott Sinclair.
He has made 36 appearances across all competitions this season, scoring 11 goals and supplying seven assists.
