IN-FORM ARMSTRONG CREDITS CELTIC COACH, RODGERS
Stuart Armstrong, who has recently picked up in his game and sports a top form, has given the credit to Celtic boss man, Brendan Rodgers.
The midfielder who joined Celtic in February 2015, said that the blueprint that has made him become a huge success with the team was given to him by the Celtic boss man during a sit-down chat with him.
After that talk, Armstrong went on to work on himself more in training, and is beginning to reap the fruit of his labor, after sporting some impressive displays which has impressed his coach so far.
In Celtic's recent win at Ross County, Armstrong had got off with a goal, and during the League Cup semifinal match against Rangers, a fine cameo also helped the Hoops sail through.
Speaking to the Celtic view, Armstrong said he yet has a lot of work to do, and he knows it, especially if he plans on meeting up with the demands placed on him by the manager.
"We had a good chat at the start of the season about a few different things,"
"He really wants that energy, high-pressing game and that level of consistency, and if I can nail that down, putting in the performances I know I can every week, he will be pleased and so will I.
"It’s important in the way we play to be energetic and mobile, so if I can adapt to that style and help the team win then that’s what I’m aiming for."
He has also hinted on another reason for his success, which he says is due to the manager playing him at his preferred central position, unlike the left wing position always given him by the former manager, Ronny Della which he was not able to efficiently utilize.
