Saints Planning Another Raid On Celtic
Monday, 3rd Jul 2017 10:55

Arron Sanders takes a look at another possible shopping trip to Celtic who must now be feeling that we are as bad as Liverpool are to us in keeping buying players off them


According to reports, Southampton have been linked with another raid on Celtic, this time for highly-rated midfielder Stuart Armstrong.

But Saints would have to cough up £10 million for the 25-year-old Scotland international who has played over 200 games for both Celtic and his former team Dundee United.

As with previous transfers between the clubs Celtic are going to want to hang on to their best players until after the Champions League qualifiers are over.

And if Celtic were to sell the former Dundee United ace if would not be until late in the transfer window as the Virgil Van Dijk transfers and others were over previous seasons.

Saints have a good record when it comes to the quality of signings from The Hoops, should Armstrong replicate that fact then we would be getting a great deal for the fee quoted.

What do you make of this latest rumoured transfer target? Would you welcome the signing of Stuart Armstrong to St Mary's?

Whilst I could never say I was disappointed to sign the likes of Forster, Wanyama and VVD I can never understand why certain clubs seem to target other clubs. I have a certain degree of sympathy for their fans knowing how much I despise LFC.

Worth saying twice bstoke - I agree. How can we bad mouth Liverpool while, essentially doing the same ourselves.

To be fair we do at least do it the right way. We target their player then talk directly to the club and actually make an offer.
The reason Liverpool are so depsised is that they don't do this. They use the press and ex players to make noises for weeks without just being professional and quietly contacting the club. This is why we can deal with Celtic. We actually show them some respect.

The other reason I hate Liverpool is that their fans seem to think they have a divine right to any player they want and they seem unable to understand why any player wouldn’t want to play for Liverpool or why any club wouldn’t want to sell to Liverpool. I’m confident none of us take the same approach to Celtic.

Celtic is selling these players to a team in another league....not rivals for the same spot on the table. So while they may not like seeing quality players leave, it's not going to hurt them in their league.

Armstrong and VVD would make a formidable pair in the middle or the park. Armstrong scored 17 goals in league and cup last season, nominated for footballer of the year and capped. At 25 he is a perfect age. Sign him up, we haven't had a bad one yet from Celtic (dodgy Forster sometimes).
