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."

Dundee 1 Celtic 2

Celtic are just a single-victory away from a sixth successive league title after a 2-1 triumph against Dundee at Dens Park.

It took the visitors until approaching the interval before Jozo Simunovic's effort deflected in off Kevin Gomis. Stuart Armstrong then headed in James Forrest's cross early in the second period.

Substitute Faissal El Bakhtaoui managed to reduce the deficit with fourteen minutes remaining, but it wasn't enough to produce a recovery.
