'Magnificent' - Armstrong singles out one Celtic man for praise after Bayern defeat
By John Reid
Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong has joined the chorus of voices claiming that Celtic can take positives from last night’s 2-1 defeat to Bayern Munich.
The Bhoys turned in their best performance of the Champions League campaign so far, creating plenty of chances before ultimately losing to Javi Martinez’s winning goal.
Unfortunately Armstrong was guilty of a glaring miss in the first ten minutes of the game, as he found himself in acres of space in the back post but let the ball run under his foot.
Despite missing that great opportunity, Armstrong was still positive about the game, as he told Celtic’s official website.
“It was one where there were a lot of positives and a lot of fight and to not get anything from the game was disappointing,” Armstrong said.

“The manager likes to keep what he says in the dressing room within our group, but it was a feeling that he could be proud of us and we did compete at the very best level.
“Jamesy [Forrest] was terrific and he caused a threat for the whole game, inside and outside,” Arsmtrong added.
“His pace really threatened them, his delivery was good and his link-up play was excellent and he put through a fantastic through ball for Callum for the goal, so his overall display was magnificent.”
