MIDFIELDER Stuart Armstrong has declared his surgery in Germany has been a success.

The 25-year-old Celtic star is set for a period on the sidelines following a hernia operation after stopping off on the way back from the Hoops’ winter break in Dubai.

Armstrong wrote on his Instagram account “successful trip” as he happily posed for a picture with the club’s chief physiotherapist Tim Williamson at Munich airport yesterday.

The Scotland international will miss the Scottish Cup-tie against Brechin City at Parkhead on Saturday. And he will be out for the first three league matches after play resumes.

He will also be a major doubt for the busy schedule coming up including home-and-away Europa League clashes against Russian side Zenit St Petersburg next month.



A Celtic State of Mind presents its 30th instalment of insightful discussion around the culture of Celtic Football Club, the city of Glasgow, and fans of the reigning treble-winning Scottish champions.

Kevin Graham is joined by Scotty Alcroft to interview Scottish pro-independence politician, Tommy Sheridan, at The Penalty Spot in Glasgow.

The interview took place as part of A Celtic State of Mind’s first live event – Five-a-sides at The Penalty Spot – and, as such, there is some background noise (including mobile interference – apologies) from the audience.

The other voice you may hear throughout this episode is that of former Celtic striker, Frank McGarvey, who is a friend of Tommy’s, and who was also interviewed separately that day for a future show.

You are sure to enjoy Tommy’s eclectic input, as he discusses everything from Catalan independence to Coolio, with a constant undercurrent of that thing called Celtic.
