“I’ve played enough games for a winner’s medal and it’s very exciting, so, hopefully, there’s a lot more to come.
“I didn’t foresee something like this and to mention it now is quite surreal. To think that in a few days’ time we’ll be out on the pitch with the trophy parading around is strange, but it will be a real sense of achievement.
“It’s a credit to the fans that every time you come to Celtic Park there are a lot of people here and every time we go away from home, the support and the amount of noise they make is incredible.
“I now have things in my mind that I’d like to improve upon and my targets for next season. I want to add more goals and be more creative.”
Armstrong was Cup-tied along with Mackay-Steven and was forced to sit out the League Cup triumph over his former Tannadice team in March. Now he is hoping to make up for lost time.
“I loved playing in those games and I loved the atmosphere, the sense of competition and the importance of the match.
“We now have an opportunity to go one step further and, possibly, play in the Champions League so that would be a dream come true.
“You could play teams such as Real Madrid and Barcelona and come up against the world’s best which would help you truly see how you are as a footballer and how you can deal with that.
“To have that opportunity would be great and for the boys who have beaten Barcelona before – I can’t imagine what it’s like, but I really want the taste of something like it.”
