@CrumbsTMT said: "I'd launch any midfielder not named Callum McGregor out of Celtic Park with a trebuchet if it meant Stuart Armstrong coming back."

@P__67 added: "Stuart Armstrong back? F*****g YES! He’ll also come back a far better player after a year in the Prem, which he done well in. Also we get to sing his song again obvz."

While @Kitson67 tweeted: "Stuart Armstrong returning would be a dream. Get him in that 10 role ASAP. Also can he play right back?"

Although, not everyone was positive about the rumour.

@melbourne88 said: "I’ve no idea if Stuart Armstrong is any good or not and neither do you, drap the act."

But mainly fans were a bit skeptical at the idea of a player who performed reasonably well in the English Premier League last season would come back to Scottish football - and at an affordable price.

@FrankBtin insisted: "Stuart Armstrong is not coming to Celtic. Anyone who believes otherwise needs to get a grip on reality."
