'Where’s the logic', 'Sold in the summer' - Celtic fans react to reported mainstay injury blow
Celtic fans have been reacting on social media to the news that Stuart Armstrong has had an operation on a hernia injury.
The Scotsman reported that the 25-year-old, a mainstay of the side under Brendan Rodgers, had the operation in Germany on Monday.
Armstrong is set to be out for around a month with his injury blow and the Bhoys are said to be hopeful he will return in time for the Europa League last 32 clash against Zenit on the 15th of February.
This news has lead to all manner of responses from fans, with some of the opinion that the player won’t be missed because he has struggled to find his best form this season.
Others are bemused by the fact that Armstrong had the operation on Monday instead of at the start of the winter break a fortnight ago.
Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to Armstrong’s operation:
Why not send him for surgery at the start of the winter break? Weird.

Armstrong was a stand-out for the Hoops side which clinched their first treble since 2001 last season, scoring 17 goals and deservedly being nominated for player of the year.
This season he has struggled to recapture the form, and has scored only four goals so far. Despite this, we will still be a miss as Brendan Rodgers considers the player a key part of the team.
