  • Stuart Armstrong signs for Southampton on a four-year deal

    Stuart Armstrong signs for Southampton on a four-year deal

    By: Newsroom Staff on 26 Jun, 2018 17:31

  • MIDFIELDER Stuart Armstrong has joined Southampton on a four-year deal after three-and-a-half highly successful and impressive years at Celtic Park. The 26-year-old Scottish internationalist moves to the English Premier League side and will link up with his new team-mates when they resume pre-season training.

    Armstrong joined Celtic in February 2015, along with Gary Mackay-Steven, on a transfer deadline day move from Dundee United, and both players scored on their Celtic debuts, netting in a 3-0 victory over Partick Thistle at Firhill.

    In helping the Hoops win the league title, he made 17 appearances, and also scored on a memorable night at Paradise as Celtic drew 3-3 with Inter Milan at home in the UEFA Europa League.

    The following season he was a regular in the starting XI, making a total of 39 appearances and scoring two goals as the Hoops once again lifted the league title, their second under Ronny Deila.

    Armstrong played his part in the Invincibles' treble-winning season under Brendan Rodgers, making 47 appearances and scoring 17 goals, including Celtic’s final goal in the 5-1 demolition derby in what was Brendan Rodgers’ first Glasgow derby against Rangers. Last season he made 41 appearances as the Hoops clinched the Double Treble, scoring five goals.

    And if that wasn’t impressive enough, he was the subject of a brilliant fans’ song, which paid tribute to his football ability and his impressive hair style!

    In total, Stuart Armstrong made 144 appearances for Celtic, scoring 28 goals. He won four Premiership titles, two Scottish Cups and two League Cups while also helping the Hoops reach the group stages of the UEFA Champions League for the past two seasons and, last year, progressing on to the last 32 of the UEFA Europa League.

    Everyone at Celtic would like to thank Stuart for his fantastic contribution to the success the club has enjoyed during his time here, and we want to wish him every success in the future with Southampton.
