Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong is facing a spell on the sidelines following surgery.

The 25-year-old underwent a hernia operation in Germany yesterday, reports the Daily Record.

Armstrong had been struggling with the condition over recent weeks and it was felt the January break was the ideal opportunity to sort out the problem.

He signed a new two-year-deal with the champions last August having arrived from Dundee United in 2015.

Celtic return to action against Brechin City in the Scottish Cup fourth round this weekend.
