Some Celtic fans are pleased to see the back of Stuart Armstrong for £7m

Stuart Armstrong has become the latest Celtic player to make the switch to English Premier League side Southampton, with his move to St Mary’s confirmed on Tuesday evening.

The BBC report he signs on a four-year deal for a £7m fee, following in the footsteps of Victor Wanyama, Virgil van Dijk and Fraser Forster, who all signed for Saints off the back of impressive spells at the Hoops.

Having had just a year left on his contract, the reported fee is a significant one for Celtic, who are already flush with cash after two successive seasons in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League.

Armstrong contributed plenty in his time at the Hoops, with his standout season undoubtedly coming in 2016/17 when he scored 17 goals and provided 7 assists on Celtic’s march towards an invincible treble of domestic trophies.

He was a popular figure with the Celtic support, but some are now happy to see the back of him considering the fee involved in his exit.

These supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his exit…
