BRENDAN ‘HOPEFUL’ ON ARMSTRONG SIGNING NEW CELTIC DEAL

0

CELTIC boss Brendan Rodgers is hopeful of Stuart Armstrong agreeing a contract extension.

The midfielder, who won his first full Scotland cap last season, is a free agent in the summer.

Talks started about a new contract at the turn of the year, but haven’t up until now shown much sign of progress.

The arrivals of fellow-midfield men Olivier Ntcham, a £4.5million buy from Manchester City, and teenager Kundai Benyu, from Ipswich Town, have added even more competition, but Rodgers is optimistic a new deal can be agreed with the former Dundee United player.

He said: “I’m hoping that very soon that can be resolved either way.

“I don’t think we are too far away now. I hope for him and the club it can be resolved.

“We haven’t had any offers for Stuart. I know what his goals are, I know where he wants to be and we can help him achieve them here.

“If that’s the case, he’ll sign. Stability would be good for him.”
