‘Best Player So Far This Season’ Top Player And Top Fella’ Fans On Twitter Leap To Defence Of Celtic Playmaker

Celtic attacking midfielder Ryan Christie was sent off in yesterday’s 2-0 defeat to Livingston leading to criticism of the player on social media.

The 24-year-old has subsequently deleted his Twitter account following the fallout, but fans on Twitter have been rallying around the player:

Christie has undoubtedly been one of Celtic’s best players this season, having scored 11 goals and provided five assists in 19 appearances for the Hoops. While his red card was warranted, it shouldn’t detract from what has been an outstanding campaign for the playmaker so far.

The midfielder will miss the next three games due to suspension, so he won’t feature against Ross County, Aberdeen or St Mirren.

However, the ban doesn’t apply for European fixtures so he’ll likely be in the side for Celtic’s crucial home fixture in the Europa League against Lazio later this month. He will, no doubt, want to make amends with a top display during that game.
