A number of Celtic fans slammed Ryan Christie on social media for his performance against Hibernian on Saturday afternoon.
It could be the 37-year-old’s final game in temporary charge of the Hoops, with reports claiming that former Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is in line to become Neil Lennon’s permanent successor at Parkhead.
The Hoops ended their campaign with a 0-0 stalemate at Easter Road in what was Scott Brown’s final appearance as a Celtic player, but many fans couldn’t help but talk about Christie’s performance for the final time of this troubled season.
Christie, who has been linked with a move away from the Hoops, was making his 46th appearance in all competitions this term and started alongside David Turnbull and Mohamed Elyounoussi in behind Odsonne Edouard.
The attacking midfielder was replaced just after the hour mark, coming off for James Forrest. He failed to complete a key pass and lost possession nine times, as per Sofascore, while he rarely threatened Hibs goalkeeper Ofir Marciano.
Celtic fans react to Christie’s display
Here is what these Celtic supporters had to say about Christie, with one going as far as calling him a ‘donkey’.
“I’m watching this Celtic game in the hope that it’ll be Christie’s last. Was a big fan of his prior to last summer but he’s worn out my goodwill completely this year.“
“Ryan Christie. What’s the point”
“I’d take £5 and a bag of footballs for Ryan Christie just now.“
“Hopefully this is the last time I see Ryan Christie in a Celtic top“
“100% can’t stand Ryan Christie“
“Canny wait to see the back of Ryan Christie and Jonjoe Kenny, absolute donkeys“
