Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong has been talking about the impossibly high standards that are set for Celtic ahead of Sunday’s Betfred Cup Final against Motherwell.
The 25-year-old is of the opinion that Celtic is different from other clubs, as you have to win every game that the team plays, and a season without a trophy is seen as a failure.
As reported by Celtic’s official twitter account, the former Dundee United man said “Life at Celtic is full of expectation.
“You have to win trophies. You have to win every game. As a Celtic player you learn to deal with that and that’s part and parcel of playing here.”

Armstrong seems likely to be a starter for Celtic on Sunday as he was kept on the bench for the duration on Wednesday’s 7-1 Champions League defeat to PSG in Paris.
Last season Armstrong enjoyed by far his best season in the Hoops, scoring 17 goals in 47 games, being nominated for the Scottish player of the year in the process and making his Scotland debut.
He signed a new one year contract at Celtic Park at the start of the season, keeping him at the Scottish champions until 2019.
This season he has scored two goals so far, as he struggled to maintain his form of last season.
