Celtic attacking midfielder Ryan Christie was by no means the only poor performer in the Hoops’ 2-2 draw against Livingston last night but his displays over the season, as a whole, have also been very disappointing.
The Scottish international failed to pick out a pass at the Tony Macaroni Arena despite supposedly being a key playmaker, and he lost out in a 50/50 challenge for Livi’s equaliser on the hour mark.
Supporters on Twitter gave Christie both barrels after the game, with many questioning his commitment to the club after refusing to sign a new contract:
This guy is not interested in playing for Celtic. Get rid immediately

He doesn’t want to be there and has no interest in playing.

Hes kidding himself on believing the hype that he is a class act instead of doing it on the park

Thinks he is too good for the the Scottish league

Statistically speaking, Christie hasn’t had that bad of a season, with four goals and 11 assists in 29 appearances, but there has been a sharp drop off from his performances last campaign.
It seems as though the 25-year-old is angling for a move away from Celtic Park, with Arsenal and Nice having been mentioned as potential destinations but, based on last night’s display, he won’t be joining that calibre of club.
