Celtic: A lot of supporters now defend Ryan Christie after he deleted his Twitter account

Ryan Christie has deleted his Twitter account after a barrage of abuse following his red card for Celtic against Livingston on Sunday, according to The Scottish Sun.

Will Celtic get to 10 in a row?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The midfielder was sent off midway through the first half for a reckless high tackle with the scores level at 0-0.

To compound Christie’s misery, city rivals Rangers secured all three points at home to Hamilton and leapfrogged Celtic to go top of the league going into the international break.

Christie has been in exceptional form this season with 11 goals and five assists but he didn’t get much sympathy for his stupidity. A section of fans took to Twitter to criticise the Hoops midfielder, with some going so far in their vitriol that he has since deleted his account.

Still, these fans showed their support for their player and, whilst not condoning his actions, they let their feelings be known to those who abused him.
