Celtic fans have been reacting to the news that Ryan Christie has left the club as part of the deadline day deals.
It’s been a summer of change at Celtic Park with the club going through a major rebuild both on and off the pitch. And with the club having made a rather large number of signings, there were inevitably going to have to be a couple of players that would need to leave the club in order to balance the books.
And Christie is one of those players that has left the club as he has made the move to English Championship side Bournemouth. He leaves the club having made 151 appearances, during which time he scored 41 goals and chipped in with 44 assists and lifting a number of trophies as part of the Celtic dynasty of the 2010s.
However, despite all of those achievements, it seems as though there were a number of fans who were quite happy to see him leave the club, and they made their views known when the club announced his exit on Twitter, with some seeing the move to Scott Parker’s side as a step down:
“Massive step down but if that’s what he wanted then fair enough.”
Will Christie be missed at Celtic?
With the goals and assists that have walked out the door with Christie, it will be interesting to see if these fans will still be happy to have seen him leave if Celtic don’t manage to perform well this season. Who knows, they may end up missing him.
