Many Celtic supporters have been discussing a news update regarding Ryan that emerged on social media.

Southampton are also interested in the Scotsman and they are said to be eyeing a cut-price deal for the midfielder. Christie’s current contract at Parkhead runs out in the upcoming January transfer window and a move abroad appeals to him.

The news regarding Leicester’s interest in Christie drew the attention of many Celtic fans, who made their views clear about this update.

Celtic fans can you get 8/8 on this quiz on forgotten players. First up, who is this?

Christie shone under Rodgers, contributing to 21 goals in all competitions for the Hoops. So there might be an understanding there and if he does go to Leicester, the move may only help him improve a footballer.
