Since Brendan Rodgers publicly asked for Stuart Armstrong’s representatives to come back to the table, there has been very little news on that front.
Many who thought midfielders contract would be done and dusted shortly after the Scottish Cup Final have been left perplexed as to why the deal has yet to be done.
The Celtic manager has given us his insights into negotiations and is adamant he thinks Stuart’s number one preference, in a footballing sense, would be to stay at Celtic Park.
Although, it seems his representatives have pound signs painted in their eyes when the whispers from down south started.
While Celtic’s offer to the midfielder puts him up a higher echelon of the Celtic Park pay scale, it pales in comparison to the money the player will be offered down south.
With no agreement in place and just over three weeks of the transfer window to go, don’t be surprised to see Celtic cash in on the player – if the opportunity presents itself.
The worst case scenario for the club is for Stuart to sign a pre-contract with another club in January.
