The Celtic Way writer Tony Haggerty believes that Ryan Christie is enjoying his football under Ange Postecoglou and it may result in him staying with the Hoops.
The Daily Record reported that Burnley are interested in Christie and have been admirers for some time. Alex Crook of talkSPORT also reported on his Twitter account this week that Southampton have no interest in Ryan Christie and there is nothing in the rumours linking Stuart Armstrong with a return to the Hoops.
Christie has started this season really well under Postecoglou, featuring in seven matches and scoring one goal and providing three assists.
Haggerty believes that Christie is happy playing under Postecoglou, telling Transfer Tavern: “I think Ange recognises that and I think the player recognises that, you know, there’s no substitute for a happy player.
“If you’re producing, the grass isn’t always greener, you might get the money and there’s no denying that, but will he be happy? Will he play? These are things that players have to weigh-up in their mind.”
Christie current Celtic deal expires on January 1, 2022 and the Scottish Sun reported earlier this month that there have been fresh talks between Celtic and Christie, but the 26-year-old has yet to receive a concrete offer.
After an opening day defeat to Hearts in the Scottish Premiership, Celtic have improved with back-to-back 6-0 victories against Dundee and St Mirren and are also just 90 minutes away from the Europa League group stages, as they hold a 2-0 lead of AZ Alkmaar going into the second leg of their play-off match.
