STUART ARMSTRONG is desperate to get involved in the High Noon shoot-out against Motherwell at Fir Park on Saturday.

The midfielder, frustrated recently with injuries, has come off the substitutes’ bench for the past two games against Fenerbahce and Hamilton.

Now he is looking forward to making his first appearance against Well as a Hoops player.

Armstrong said: ““I’m really eager now to just get back involved. It was nice to get half-an-hour and feel good in the 2-1 win over Hamilton.

“That was the first game where I felt my normal self again, so, if I can continue that, there are a lot of games coming up and, hopefully, I can play my part at some point.

“For some reason, when I was at Dundee United, we always played well against Motherwell. They liked to pass the ball and it was always an open game, so it tended to be high-scoring and we always seemed to come out on top. I don’t know why.

“It’s away from home and Fir Park seems to be one of these pitches where there’s a lot of space, so I always enjoy playing there, but there are a lot of different types of games and the manager may want to call on different personnel.”

Armstrong, speaking in this week’s Celtic View, added: “They are all big games as we’re still pushing for the league and we have the League Cup match against Hearts at Tynecastle coming up, as well, which is a big game for us.

“We’d like to retain that trophy and then there’s the Europa League and everyone wants to play in that, too.

“So, it’s an exciting month for us. I hope that I’m involved and a part of that.”
