Ange Postecoglou wants Ryan Christie’s Celtic contract to be extended, according to journalist Ekrem Konur.
The Lowdown: Christie’s situation
It emerged back in April that Christie has less time on his Hoops contract than many thought. The 26-year-old penned a Parkhead extension back in 2018, however, that deal expires in January, not next summer.
That means that the attacking midfielder can now talk to clubs outside of Scotland ahead of a potential pre-contract agreement.
As we know, that is yet to materialise and Christie’s situation remains the same, but it seems as if Postecoglou wants to tie the Scot down to a new Celtic Park contract.
The Latest: Konur’s claim
Will Ryan Christie sign a new deal at Celtic?
The Verdict: All down to Christie…
Christie appears to be a man in demand this summer, and ultimately, he’ll decide what he wants to do with his contract running down.
Celtic could do with knowing Christie’s stance on his future as soon as possible, as the Hoops could then look at selling this summer instead of losing him on a free in January.
