Armstrong not loving life on the bench at Southampton.
Southampton midfielder Stuart Armstrong says that it has been hard sitting on the bench this season. Armstrong joined Southampton from Scottish giants Celtic in the summer but has struggled to find a regular place in the starting line-up this season. He has only managed two Premier League starts, and one in the League Cup, and six appearances as a substitute. The Scot has failed to score or assist so far, but has shown flashes of quality going forward. Speaking to The BBC, Armstrong said this: “I wouldn’t say I miss Scottish football. I had my time here. I was very grateful for it and had a lot of nice memories.” “It’s always hard when you’re not playing games, not starting games especially, because nobody likes sitting on the bench” “I’m not the most patient. I need to learn to adapt. I’m in a different league – I spent eight years in the Scottish League.” Armstrong started 15 league games for Celtic last season, scoring five and assisting three. He also started four Champions League games for the Hoops.
