Whelan in awe of Christie
The 25-year-old played a big part for his country after the Tartan Army qualified for their first major tournament since 1998.
Former Celtic ace David Marshall saved the crucial penalty from Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic to send Scotland fans into sheer elation.

“It was a fantastically well-taken goal as well and just scoring goals gives you that confidence and belief back into your game and into yourself.
“With the magnitude of the goal and the game itself, to keep that kind of concentration and that that mental strength throughout the whole game, I’m very sure that he will take that into domestic football.
“He’ll have that grit in his teeth and know that to go to the euros you need to perform week in, week out to be chosen for that tournament.”
Transfer Tavern take
It was a memorable night for Christie and Whelan’s words encapsulate what a talent he is, both physically and mentally.
Christie is an essential player for Lennon and has already scored three goals from 11 appearances in the Premiership this season (TransferMarkt), and will be provided with a huge morale boost after the events in Belgrade.
The Parkhead faithful will be excited to see him back in a green and white shirt once more as they face Hibernian in their next game and they’ll be hoping that they will see similar performances for his club.
