Since Brendan Rodgers has taken over at Celtic, The Hoops have become a powerhouse. The last two seasons have been truly historic as Rodgers’ side have completed Scottish football’s first-ever double-treble. Now, it looks like young Ryan Christie is determined to be apart of the nest record-breaking Celtic side as he aims to break into the first team this season.
“I feel ready now to push as a regular for Celtic. It doesn’t really matter where on the park I play. The main aim is I play for Celtic week in, week out.”https://t.co/eUiZ5DykjP

Christie signed for The Hoops in 2015 and has experienced two separate loan moves in his time at Parkhead. However, this season he’s determined to make himself a regular feature in the first-team and avoid being sent out on yet another loan. Last season he spent time out at Pittodrie and helped the Dandies finish 2nd in the Scottish Premier League, but this season he wants to be celebrating a title win with the Bhoys.
The 23-year-old midfielder has claimed that it doesn’t matter where he plays as long as he’s in the starting eleven and when you’re willing to talk big like that you need to back in up with performances. There’s no doubting that he has it in him to back it up but whether Rodgers will afford him the chance in what promises to be one of the closest fought battles for the SPL title in years is a different matter.

looked good on Sunday when he came on once he gets a run in with the team I think he will be a star in the making

I reckon he could play the same role Armstrong played , making runs from deep in behind the strikers , good on the ball , said if he works on his defensive side I don't see why he couldn't be armstrongs replacement
