Stuart Armstrong gained many admirers as he emerged from Dundee United’s youth ranks to become one of the country’s most gifted midfielders.
While most of the praise centred on his ability to dash past defenders as he drove into opposition penalty boxes, his quite magnificent hair also caught the attention of fans at Tannadice and later Celtic Park, where he moved in 2015.
@TekelTowers Several United lads get sensitive about their hair! Having to compete with Armstrong's 'just stepped out of a salon' look!

If Armstrong goes to Celtic will the hair transplant crew of Griffiths, Stokes & GMS accept him?

I’m missing Stuart Armstrong with his fine hair, taking the ball from defenders and going forward with pace attacking the opposition #Celtic ??????????

It is a fact clearly recognised at his new club, English Premiership outfit Southampton FC.
They have chosen Armstrong for this brilliant Valentine’s Day message to their fans.
