Midfielder deserves opportunity

Midfielder deserves opportunity

Brendan Rodgers reckons the time is right for Stuart Armstrong to be given his full Scotland debut.

The 24-year-old midfielder was on target with his twelfth goal of the campaign in the weekend victory at Dundee. He was already a regular for his nation at Under-21 level.

"He has all the tools to play at the top level of international football in a really quick game, so he certainly can go in and play," Rodgers told BBC Scotland. "There are obviously good players with Scotland and in that part of the field.

"The one thing I will say is that I have always believed that international football is about technique, speed, mobility and a tactical awareness - and he has got those elements," he added. "He has this inbuilt brain to score goals and different types of goals. He is a big talent and he is only going one way, which is nice for Celtic and Scotland."

Rodgers impressed with depth

Manager Brendan Rodgers said the latest victory against Dundee in the Scottish League Cup served to highlight the depth of his available squad.

Dundee 0 Celtic 4

Holders Celtic moved into the Scottish League Cup semi-finals with a 4-0 victory against Dundee at Dens Park.

The always lively Scott Sinclair's penalty earned them a first-half lead improved by James Forrest just prior to the break.

However, the Hoops were forced to wait until very late in the contest before substitute Callum McGregor and Forrest (again) added further goals.
