Celtic fans on Twitter are loving Rodgers’ update on Christie

Celtic have been given a huge injury boost with Ryan Christie closing in on a return to first-team action.

Christie was stretchered off in his side’s recent 2-1 defeat to Red Bull Salzburg in the Europa League, but manager Brendan Rodgers has since come out to ease the fears of supporters, hinting at a possible return by the end of the month for the 23-year-old.

“It’s not as bad as what we first thought,” Rodgers told BBC Radio Scotland (via BBC Sport). “When he had the scan after the game, we had good news on that.

“He’s now full weight bearing. He’s able to get his foot on the floor so you never know. You never know for midweek or next weekend.”

Christie has been in good form for Celtic this season, scoring five goals in 11 SPL appearances, and his return will be welcomed with much delight, especially after his side’s 2-0 loss to Hibernian.
