Celtic fans take to Twitter in hope that injured Ryan Christie makes Scottish Cup final

Celtic fans take to Twitter in hope that injured Ryan Christie makes Scottish Cup final

Celtic fans will still be basking in their win over Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup semi-final, however, it was a win that came at a cost. They may have ensured they’re back in the Scottish Cup final once again and have a great chance of completing the treble-treble, yet Ryan Christie suffered multiple facial fractures in the win when he clashed with Dom Ball.

The versatile Scottish attacker can feature as a winger or as an attacking midfielder in Neil Lennon’s Celtic side, and in 23 games in the Scottish Premier League, the creative midfielder has bagged himself nine goals and six assists, a respectable tally for the 24-year-old. Now, though, it looks like he may not get another chance to add to that tally as he faces another spell on the sidelines.

Neil Lennon has relied upon the 24-year-old a lot at times this season, and together with Callum McGregor, he was running the game up until his clash with Ball last Sunday. The Aberdeen man was on a booking when he challenged for the ball with Christie, catching the Bhoy in the face with his head and it looked like a nasty one from the off, with the extent of the injury now really hitting home as we look back on Dom Ball’s second yellow card.

The Bhoys cannot wait to have Christie back in the side and will be desperate for him to make it in time for the Cup final on May 25th.
