For the Celtic fans in the Transfer Tavern, life is pretty good right now. Imperious in their domestic game, the Bhoys in our bar are hoping Brendan Rodgers can ensure they are playing European football after the festive period, through means of the Europa League.
Under Rodgers’ watch, our punters clad in green and white are eager to see their constant improvement continue. With that in mind, our resident Hoops have been excited to read comments made by a Celtic player not currently at the club.
Speaking to the Scotsman, Ryan Christie has revealed he feels he is developing at Aberdeen, much to the delight of the Celtic fans in our bar. The forward seems to be benefitting from Rodgers’ decision to loan him out to a league rival, doing enough to earn his Scotland debut against Holland recently.
Christie has bagged 11 goals in 32 games for the Dons and has hinted he believes he can return to Celtic as a major player, after largely spending his time at Parkhead on the periphery on the first-team.
“Playing week in and week out helps my belief instead of sitting there on the sidelines and thinking that I’m not good enough”, said the 22-year-old.
”Playing for Scotland helps confidence. It shows that I might be able to go back to Celtic and prove a point.”
Why not? Christie certainly is a talent and has started deciding Scottish Premiership games on a fairly regular basis at long last, which is only a good thing for Celtic.
