Brendan Rodgers has heaped huge praise on Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong.

The Celtic manager believes that the 24-year-old has “wonderful intelligence” is “very strong” and “has goals in him”.

Armstrong gave a great performance in the club’s last match against Ross County on Wednesday, scoring one goal and making an assist in the 4-0 league victory.

The winger took his goal in some style just inside the penalty box and cooly slotted the ball into the corner with his right foot.

Rodgers believes that Armstrong is a great player and spoke highly of him in a press conference.

“He’s (Armstrong) got a wonderful intelligence; a very good footballer. He’s technically very strong and has goals in him,” Rodgers said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

Armstrong is currently contesting for a starting place alongside Scott Sinclair, James Forrest and Patrick Roberts.

He has made 14 appearances in all competitions this season but only completed 90 minutes on three occasions, one of them being his recent showing against Ross County.

Celtic face a huge clash against second-placed Aberdeen on Saturday and Armstrong will hope to make an impact in the game.
