Celtic fans on social media agree with recent comments made by former Hoops striker Chris Sutton about current Hoops midfielder Stuart Armstrong.
With Armstrong having only a year left on his contract with the Bhoys, Sutton took to his personal Twitter account to express his belief that the 26-year-old should be sold as soon as possible if he doesn’t agree a new deal with the Bhoys.
I like Stuart Armstrong as a player but he didn’t want to commit to Celtic long term last season…. if he’s not committed the best thing Celtic can do is sell him and move on asap… https://t.co/LvtqndBu3P

Fans seem to agree with Sutton’s take on the situation, with some claiming that the Hoops can afford to sell him on as he is no longer a first-choice player at the club.
Meanwhile some other supporters think that the Scotland international is an excellent player, but that it seems inevitable that he will be leaving the Hoops sooner rather than later.
Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to Sutton’s comments:
Brown, N'tcham, McGregor, Rogic… All ahead of him in the central midfield pecking order

Cracking player but there's no point in keeping a player who wants to move on. I wish Stuart all the best whatever he decides.

Sell him and move on, better for us.. gotta to be money is his motivation, he will end up at a lower EPL side or one of those just relegated to the Championship.

Armstrong has had an intriguing few years for the Hoops, with one stand-out season in particular.
It was his performances in 2016-17 when he scored 17 goals as the Hoops won the treble which first brought him to most people’s attention, but unfortunately he was unable to hit the similar heights last season or in any of his other previous seasons with the Hoops.
With his contract situation on the verge of becoming an issue for the second season in a row it seems likely that Armstrong’s future will be decided in the near future.
