Pundit Frank McAvennie has recently talked to Football Insider about Christie’s current situation at Celtic. McAvennie said that it is true that Christie wants to depart Celtic in the summer and the stories making rounds in the media say the same.
The pundit also said that if he wants to play in the Premier League, he needs to perform better this season. He also believes that Celtic have been ‘shoehorning’ Christie in the team and the way he’s performing, he won’t survive in the Championship, let alone in the Premier League.
Should Christie get sold in the summer?
These comments from McAvennie were relayed on Facebook by Celtic Insider. Many Hoops supporters made their views clear about Christie’s future.
What do Celtic fans make of Ryan Christie?
Christie had featured for Celtic against Ross County on Sunday, but the Scotsman was taken off late in the game for Mohamed Elyounoussi. Christie had picked up a rather poor rating of 6.22 in the game on Sunday, failing to score or assist in the tie (as per Whoscored).
Some of these Celtic fans want Christie gone from the club and some of them feel that he’s not performed well in the current campaign.
While this shows that he has been important player for Celtic this season, Christie’s contract runs out in the summer of 2022 and if he wants to leave, 2021 could be Celtic’s best chance of earning a fee from the midfielder’s sale.
