The Stuart Armstrong and Scotty Sinclair songs will always be associated with our Invincible season, especially for the fans who travelled to the games home and especially away.
There was something extra special about following Celtic that season – possibly that magic will never be repeated for a long time anyway.
We lost an Invincible this week when Stuart Armstrong signed for Southampton. You will all have seen the Southampton video that used Celtic fans signing the Stuart Armstrong song to announce his arrival at St Mary’s.
Celtic’s social media guys asked for a wee donation for the Foundation and the Saints duly ‘paid their dues,’ to howls of laughter from everyone as there was a wee unspoken dig at Govania in there.
Go behind the scenes at Stuart Armstrong's #SaintsFC signing day!

However what wasn’t really noted is that this song was well known to Southampton. Mark Hughes explained that they had done their homework on Armstrong and the supporters’ song for the player was obviously used as a selling point for the Armstrong ‘brand’ – if you are his agent you are using this to illustrate that the player is a fans favourite.
Clever, eh? Well the song will be heard at St Mary’s next season that is for certain. Just change Brendan for Sparkey and green for red and they are sorted.
But maybe the Celtic fans don’t plan to give up on the song just as easily as that. On Twitter this evening (@Junior51505689) this was posted as an alternative and it involves giving the Stuart Armstrong song to Celtic skipper Scott Brown.
Now this needs some work but it has potential, here goes…
New Armstrong song…
Ohh Brendan said
The captain’s in centre mid
Saw the rangers new-co
Now he’s gonnae do 10 in a row
His head is bald
He wears t-shirts in the Russian cauld
He swaggers roon the Toon
He’s our Captain Scotty Broon
Maybe change SAW for SKELPED but other than that, nice…
Now if only we had a decent song for Tom Rogic!
