Life as a Celtic fan has been nothing short of a celebration for the punters in the Transfer Tavern ever since Brendan Rodgers took over his boyhood heroes around a year ago.
An unbeaten, Treble-winning season followed and the Bhoys in the bar are eager to kick the new campaign off as soon as possible and continue the good times at Parkhead. Still, reports from the Scottish Sun have proved somewhat concerning for our resident Hoops.
They claim Premier League side Southampton have become the latest side to express an interest in the potential signing of Celtic Park hero Stuart Armstrong. The Scotland international became a revelation under Rodgers and played an instrumental role in the Hoops’ success last season, though is entering the final year of his deal.
The classy central midfielder is also thought to have been tracked by the likes of West Bromwich Albion and Brighton, with the Saints now understood to have thrown their hats into the proverbial ring.
As you can well imagine, considering his exploits last year, the idea of seeing Armstrong up and leave is a scary one indeed for the punters clad in green and white propping up our bar.
