MARK WILSON has told Celtic not to hesitate in their move for Dundee United midfielder Stuart Armstrong.

The former Hoops right-back, who quit the Tannadice outfit this month, believes there will be a rush of interested clubs in the £2.5million-rated 22-year-old.

Wilson, who spent six years at Parkhead, said: “To be honest, I thought he might have gone by now.

“I know it all heats up right at the end, but, I thought someone might have tried to get in there first to take him.

“My first feeling was Celtic.

“I just feel the way Stuart has played for a number of years now, and especially against Celtic, he has been very impressive.

“Ronny Deila has come out and said how good a player he is. You can see his admiration for Stuart.

“Another good thing about Stuart is his age.

“Some people think he is older because he has been about for so long and has been in the running for Young Player of the Year and Team of the Year awards and such for the last couple of years.

“That would definitely fit in with a team like Celtic’s remit, the sort of players they try to attract.

“Get them in, get a few seasons under their belt, play them in Champions League or Europa League and sell them for a bigger price.”

Armstrong, who scored the winning goal against the champions at Tannadice last month, still has 18 months to run on his current contract at the Tayside outfit.
