BRENDAN RODGERS has admitted tonight that Stuart Armstrong’s contract saga has affected the player.
Speaking after his side made beat Partick Thistle in the Glasgow derby the Irishman offered up his thoughts on the player and his current situation, admitting the current situation cannot continue.
“Stuart’s position will be sorted one way or another. He was terrific last season & unfortunately, this (contract stand-off) is affecting his game”. said the Celtic manager.
It looks as if Armstrong’s representative’s heads have been turned by whispers from down south and the money he could make down there.
Celtic have offered the midfielder a deal but nowhere near the offers that he can get in England. Celtic will sell if the player doesn’t sign a new deal.
