3 million for Armstrong? Tell them to do one cheeky b*****ds. I'd rather let him run down his contract that let any team get away with that.

They can double that and let him get on his way! 6 million for a player in the last year of his contract would be good business! Said it a few times, the lads heads just not in it at the moment! Get as much as we can for him and reinvest it in a winger/ striker! He's obviously got no intention of signing a new deal so we move on! The sooner the better because I'm sick of hearing it now!

think he wants two yrs but club want three, give him his two yrs and punt him in jan.

11 Aug 2017 10:00:29
Offer him the deal he wants rather than lose him. If that wasn't to work. I'm with Lh just sell him and reinvest in an attacker.

11 Aug 2017 10:14:12
He obviously doesn't want to sign lads so like I said on your way son! Bigger and better have left before him. squeeze as much money out of one of the also rans in the promised land and put this to bed!

@Lh86 I don't buy into this talk about his head not in it. He's played in 5 games and scored 2 goals which is good for a midfielder. Personally I want him to sign an extension as he looks more dangerous when playing than most of our centre mids that said if he doesn't want to commit after Astana away match take 3-5 million and please celtic reinvest in a player not a potential player.

Jim his body language has been off since the start of the season, I think it's actually quite plain to see mate! And I think we'd all have loved him to sign an extension mate, and he's our best goal scoring midfielder no doubt! But he's had plenty of time to sign a deal and the time has come to move on! Like I said before we've lost bigger and better than him in the past! Just want it put to bed now and concentrate on the players who actually want to be there.

11 Aug 2017 11:30:32
I still think he might sign. But if we are only getting 3 million for him I'd keep him till end of season.
Worth more on the pitch than that crappy figure.

11 Aug 2017 11:37:45
Itll only be 3mill if the club are daft enough to accept that there's bang average players down south going for 3 and 4 times that. Just get the market value for an international and cl experienced player and if not then anno itll hit us in pocket but run down his contract and get the best out him.

11 Aug 2017 12:00:06
Swap him for forester.

11 Aug 2017 12:03:51
I think you're being disrespectful suggesting his body language is off as he in my opinion gives 100% and looked happy when he scored in midweek and disappointed when keeper pulled off a good save to deny him. I'm not arguing the point about selling him if he doesn't want to extend his contract but i don't doubt he'd give full effort at least till Christmas if need be.

11 Aug 2017 12:09:51
Will we get the best out him but that's the question! I'm not sayin just accept the first offer that comes but for me anything 5 million up I would take! I don't want a player in the team who isn't committed to the club! What does that say to the other guys in the dressing room who've committed to the club!

11 Aug 2017 12:18:05
Andre Gray went from Burnley to Watford for 18 million and he had only one year left on his contract. On top of that he's rank rotten. Three million is a joke.

11 Aug 2017 12:22:52
It's down to Rodgers and the player and the club really. I can only hope that we will just offer him what he wants. They'll know together when he wants to leave. If it's now, or next season, then sell him now. If he wants a two year extension then I'm confident he would give his all for that duration. And I think we can all live with players having their own ambitions. Give him the two year extension, get two seasons out of him, and sell him with a year left (providing acceptable bids don't come in before that) . He seems like a sensible chap, if he's after a move in the down the line, he'll know the best way to do that will by to continue trying to improve and by performing well.

11 Aug 2017 12:25:32
Nothing to with being disrespectful Jim1972! I'm giving my opinion, and I feel the Armstrong from the end of last season and the one at the start of this look different players! I'm not questioning the boys commitment on the park, that couldn't be further from the truth! I'm questioning we're his heads at and if he sees his future with us? If not then see you later!

11 Aug 2017 15:06:36
If he's wanting a move he shouldn't be playing. Even for his own sake incase he gets injured, the last thing we want is an unhappy player in the dressing room. Sign what's on offer or see ya.

11 Aug 2017 16:26:12
Fair do Lh86 I see it differently and I'm more of the opinion that he's being made to look like the bad guy. The ed and others suggested the problem was the contract length that was the issue, if this is the case then more fool the club and they are forcing an issue over 1 year which to me as a fan is ludicrous. This whole thing should have been nailed down in the summer and start with a new improved contract or sold with a suitable replacement brought in. On a side note does anyone know if the green brigade are coming back soon or still waiting on a resolution?

11 Aug 2017 17:33:11
rodgers said at the press conference the other day that celtic and armstrong weren't far away from agreeing a new deal.

11 Aug 2017 18:09:01
Jim Jim if Celtic agreed to give every player who had 6 good months everything they wanted we might have no more Celtic.

11 Aug 2017 19:54:33
Calm down old yin I'm talking about the difference between a 2 year extension and a 3 year extension try keeping up. ps it's only for certain individuals the manager wants to keep also.

11 Aug 2017 23:32:34
Well Jim I think I've been vindicated in my comments about Armstrong after what Brendan had to say about it after the game! The contract situation is affecting his game, he was great last season and since this has happened his heads not been right! Doesn't give me any pleasure to be right by the way! Think this finally tells us he's for the off.

12 Aug 2017 08:30:28
I think it also shows Brendan has been talking a lot of bull the last 4 months about the boy wanting to stay and being close to agreeing. I would prefer Brendan took a firmer stance in June to stop this situation developing days before our biggest match as I've no doubt it will be a big play in the media.

12 Aug 2017 22:08:34
Jim, I regard the idle speculation on here with the light hearted amusement that it is posted as, good for fun, but not meant to be accurate .
We have no idea what separates Armstrong from the offer Celtic have made . B R has to maintain that both sides are not far apart as long as there is any hope he is going to sign .
Unless he doesn't want him to sign and then he can talk down the possibility.
