US chat show king Corden reckons his beloved Irons should push the boat out to land Armstrong this summer, with the player only a year from the end of his Hoops contract.
Former Gavin and Stacey actor Corden told his 8.8 million followers on Twitter that the Scotland midfielder would be a superstar signing.
But Armstrong – as he has done with all the praise this season – has taken the bizarre plaudit in his stride.
And while his future may lie in England with a host of Premier League clubs ready to double the wages Celtic could offer him, Armstrong will not get hung up on his future plans.
After being named the Ladbrokes Premiership player of the month for March, Armstrong said of Corden’s Tweet: “Someone sent me it. It’s just something you have got to laugh at, a bit of humour.
“It’s always nice to see these things. There was a little bit of humour from the boys about it!
“We are looking at my contract. I am really happy here and playing some of the best football of my life.
Stuart Armstrong took the bizarre praise in his stride
James Corden told his Twitter followers that he wanted West Ham to sign Armstrong
“I’m in a really good place. I’m sure it will take care of itself.”
Celtic have a job on their hands to secure Armstrong given the financial lure of a move to good clubs down south.
But the one thing the Hoops have in their favour is that the former Dundee United midfielder is happy in Glasgow.

It may still come down to pounds and pence and a chance to play in one of the world’s most glamorous leagues.
But Celtic do have a fighting chance of getting the 25-year-old to extend his deal because of the size of the club and the ambitions under Brendan Rodgers.
Asked if he had a dream to move south at some point in his career, Armstrong said: “My view on that is my view on approaching games.
“In the past, I would have maybe dwelled on things and thought too much about different aspects of the game.

Yet just six months ago Armstrong was still being played out of position on the left of midfield and struggling to convince Rodgers he could be the main man. The Celtic boss wanted Armstrong to play in his favoured Celtic role, but the jury was still out as to whether or not the player would be good enough to slot in. Those doubts have now vanished.
An early season game in Limerick against Inter Milan saw Armstrong on the left in a team made up largely of kids and fringe players. Even then his future looked bleak.
Over the course of the next few months, though, Armstrong took the chance to shine and the rest is history.
He reflected: “I think at the time of that Inter Milan match it was more of a squad game, that one. I was still playing on the left-hand side during that time. So that was a nice time for me!
“But I always refer to the conversation I had with the manager at the start of the season.
“Following that there was a clear picture of what I needed to do be a part of his Celtic side and that’s what I’ve been working on and focusing on every day.
“Personally, for me the number eight position is the best.
“I can help in defence and go forward and naturally do what I like to do.”
