Stuart Armstrong has officially left Celtic with him joining Southampton last night as they confirmed on their Twitter account.

It was hardly a surprise to see this deal go through, let’s be honest, because it has probably been coming for over a year.

He wanted to leave last summer but then decided to stay put but, clearly, this time around things are different.

It’s a move we’ve seen before, too, with the likes of Victor Wanyama, Virgil van Dijk and Fraser Forster all moving on and having success down there and so he’s the latest to leave the club.

The Verdict

Well, we wish him all the best but if a player doesn’t want to be here then more fool them.

I’d maybe understand it if they leave for a shot at the Premier League but what’s going to achieve at Southampton that trumps what he does up here?

Trophy-wise it’s a no-brainer.
