Video: Former Celt Armstrong scores well-worked corner for Southampton

Stuart Armstrong was a stalwart in his Celtic Park career following a £2m move from Dundee United in 2015 , with his move signalling the start of the quadruple treble; and his good fortunes following his move to Southampton have continued once more with a stunning finish at home to Arsenal.

Southampton, who are flying high this season following their struggles last campaign, started stunningly at home to Kieran Tierney’s Arsenal and took the lead with a clever corner routine in just the third minute to temporarily add to Mikel Arteta’s woes.

James Ward-Prowse whipped in a corner to the edge of the box, catching Arsenal unawares and finding Armstrong, who flashed the ball into the ground on the volley and past the hapless Bernd Leno to give the Saints the lead.

Celtic have had a lot of players move between Paradise and the south coast in past years; Armstrong, Victor Wanyama, Virgil van Dijk and most recently Fraser Forster having all found good fortune at both grounds.
