Celtic ace Stuart Armstrong has taken to social media to drop a huge hint that his hernia operation in Germany has been a success.
The 25-year-old mainstay uploaded a photo of himself on his personal Instagram account with the Hoops physio Tim Williamson to Instagram with the caption “successful trip”.
The news of Armstrong’s operation came out of the blue for supporters, many of whom wondered why it didn’t take place two weeks ago when the Hoops started their winter break.
The Scotland international had the procedure done on Monday, and both he and the club are hopeful he will be back in time for the Europa League last 32 clash against Zenit on February the 15th.
The Bhoys are quite fortunate in that midfield is the most congested area of their squad, and the likes of Callum McGregor or Olivier Ntcham will be available to replace the former Dundee United player.
Armstrong has found it difficult to match the standard he achieved last season, when he scored 17 goals and was nominated for player of the year as the Bhoys clinched their first domestic treble since 2001.
He has only four goals to his name so far this season but perhaps the hernia problem has been a reason for this and he will be back to top form when he makes his return to the side.
