Chris Sutton has not pulled any punches after hearing Stuart Armstrong is heading for the Parkhead exit.
The former Celtic striker was unapologetic as he posted the below tweet.
Good riddance…Armstrong didn’t want to commit last season and didn’t play well last season… good business and good luck to him! https://t.co/fb1Ej00eHs— Chris Sutton (@chris_sutton73) June 22, 2018
The BT pundit was told he was too harsh on Armstrong but again, while he praised the player’s talent, he questioned Armstrong’s respect levels.
I like him as a player. He had six good months but didn’t want to commit last season. I think he owed Celtic a bit more respect and loyalty. Decent money and good luck to him but it is good riddance… https://t.co/ZG5yfn1sX3— Chris Sutton (@chris_sutton73) June 22, 2018
Celtic stand to make around £7million for the midfielder’s departure which seems like a win.
Armstrong has underperformed lately and wanted go leave with one-year left on his deal. To get as large a fee form someone who can sign on a pre-contact in six months is good business.
