STUART ARMSTRONG hopes to give Brendan Rodgers a selection dilemma ahead of tonight’s Champions League confrontation.
The midfielder is desperate to face Borussia Monchengladbach – but accepts the boss could turn to Nir Bitton.
Armstrong was in the starting line-up for the 2-0 win over Motherwell at the weekend with the Israeli international on the sidelines.
Bitton is expected to be fully fit for the clash against the Bundesliga outfit, but the former Dundee United man is adamant he is good to go if called upon.unspecified-13
He said: “Everyone is excited and everyone wants to play. We know what these games are like, we are all hungry and looking to play a part.
“It is obviously up to the manager to go with whom he thinks are the best players to feature and he does like continuity in the team. It is a big squad and there is loads of competition.

“I have spoken to him and I have taken a lot on board. Everyone wants to play any way they can and, hopefully, I have shown enough to give him something to think about.

“You just have to take your chance when you get it.”

The former Scotland Under-21 international, now 24, added: “These two games now against Borussia Monchengladbach are arguably the most important in the group.

“Getting something, even four from six, would put us in a really good position to try and get third or even second spot in the group.

“We are definitely capable of getting maximum points.

“We are not just here to make up the numbers. I think we showed with the performance against Manchester City that we are ready to roll up our sleeves and show that and we are ready to do that again against Borussia.”
