Was class last night and has been in general for them for the past 12 months. Another one from the SPFL holding their own in the EPL.

 

Believe it or not Armstrong was way out the picture at Celtic until Rodgers arrived.

When I was in Dundee a few years ago, I had a tour of Tannadice Park. The old fella who did the tour was talking to me about Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong. All the noise in the press was about how good GMS was. The old fella was absolutely adamant GMS would be a flash in the pan, whereas Armstrong would go on to play in the EPL. He was right clearly, GMS is in the Scottish Championship now isn't he?

 

Not that it'll happen, but I'd take Armstrong as a squad option here, especially in lieu of Praet's injury.

Yeah he was spot on, we signed both of them at the same time. GMS has tons of ability but he is terribly inconsistent and mentally quite weak. If he could have turned it on every week he would have been in the EPL too. Yeah he's recently signed for Hearts after a stint at NYCFC. He's better than the Scottish Championship tbf, he'll still do a job in the top league, where Hearts will be again next season.

Sounds a bit like Knockeart

Demonstrated by his ability to win matches one day, and fall drunk into the River Clyde the next lol

Rumours up here Karamoko Dembele is signing for Lille.

....what a waste.....!!!

Rodgers has not gone back for Celtic players which is strange as he would have had first hand view of them in training and game time. Benkovic not getting a look in even though he was lauded by their supporters. 

 Just what is it that has stop this happening.

Lille have a better record that is for buying, developing and then shipping players off. It’ll do that lad alright you’d think.

As strange as it sounds, perhaps it's because he likes the players up there. 

 

Celtics best players play in positions that we are well stocked in. 

 

Eduoard, McGregor, Ajer... With a fully fit Leiceater, they will struggle to get game time ahead of the likes of Vardy Tielemans and Soyuncu so maybe his personal relationship with these lads has prevented him taking them here and potentially stalling their career. 

 

...Just a theory. Ofcourse the other is that he doesn't think they are good enough.
