Sad to hear the extent of the injury.....good luck and speedy recovery to Ryan.
Absolutely disgusting that he has to miss out on the rest of the season because of the actions of a * brainless thug.
Update from Lenny.
Personally thought the challenge was awful and I don't like blaming other players when someone gets hurt because it's a contact sport, but that whole game reeked of overtly physical aggression which was very similar to another game we played this season when players were scything us down as if they would get away scot free and I'm sure for most tackles they did, who was that again?
Anyway, love Christie, think he's a brilliant disrupter of defences sitting in with his tireless movement and we will miss him but right now I'm just happy he's alright and wish him a comfortable recuperation and look forward to seeing him next season.
Great wee player and a tough cookie.
This wee guy has become a firm favourite of mine
Wasn't intentional but..
Quite disappointed in Lenny by the way. I know he's pally with McInnes but he should've been hammering that animal for that. McInnes would've been slamming table's if that was Broony..
, as you know, had surgery. There are multiple fractures - eye socket, jaw and cheekbone. He’s come through it okay. His welfare is paramount, so we’ll be doubtful about him for the rest of the season.”
should make an example of ball for the challenge 6 game ban for violent reckless challenge, the only way well get rid of the dirty challenges is by the referees hammering the players that commit them
No, The Fa need to hammer them. The ref just needs to send them off.
That challenge in my eyes is close to getting the lawyer / police involved.
Hope he heals well and keeps his spirits up because he has to realise that he has contributed so much to the season. Became a fans favourite fairly quickly and the support were with him from the start.
Is that his missus?
He looks more feminine than she does.
Ryan Christie has hit back at Rangers stars who celebrated the win over Celtic at the weekend.
Ibrox players took to Twitter to revel in their second derby victory of the season.
Rangers skipper James Tavernier insisted "Glasgow is blue" while Wes Foderingham posted a similar message on social media.
But Celtic star Christie, who missed the 2-0 defeat through injury, has taunted their rivals.
He pointed to the fact the champions have a trophy day to look forward to – and a Scottish Cup Final that could see Neil Lennon’s side romp to their third clean sweep in a row.
Christie said: "It all gets blown out of proportion, especially after Old Firm games.
You saw that with a couple of comments – that Glasgow is blue. But we’re going into the last two weeks with a trophy day and a Cup Final to look forward to. They certainly don’t have that.
"At the weekend Glasgow will definitely be green and white."
RC: “I’m okay, I’m getting there slowly but surely. I’m over the worst of it now. It’s nice to be back here and seeing all the boys again.
RC: “I’ve been buzzing watching the boys form the sidelines. They’ve been magnificent to wrap the league up and are now going into a huge cup final to wrap the season up. It’s frustrating to miss games but I still feel part of it and I’ll be supporting the boys.”
RC: “Everyone wants to play in big games, especially cup finals and big games in the league. I was lucky enough to play in the last cup final and I enjoyed that so it certainly feels like I’ve had my part to play this season.”
RC: “Right now I’m looking to go back into full training for the start of pre-season. I should be on target for that.”
RC: “At the start of the season I didn’t know what to expect. To break in and have an impact at Celtic has been brilliant. It’s what I wanted when I signed.“
RC: “We’re going into the last two games of the season with a trophy day and cup final. At the weekend, Glasgow will definitely be green and white.”
It is big miss not having Christie in the team right now. His goal threat and runs from deep have been badly missed. Lets hope next season he can be injury free as he has become such an important players for us and you feel if he could be injury free he could easily be a player of the year candidate in terms of his impact on our team and level of play.
RYAN Christie may have missed out on helping Celtic wrap up the league title during the final stages of the campaign, but the Hoops midfielder summed up his season as ‘very positive’ and added he was eagerly anticipating Trophy Day at Paradise this weekend.
Christie has been out injured after sustaining multiple facial fractures during Celtic’s 3-0 Scottish Cup semi-final win over Aberdeen last month and will not be back in time for the remaining two fixtures.
But he recently returned to training alongside his team-mates and revealed he was now working his way back to fitness
“I’m over the worst of it now,” he said. “It’s nice to be back here and seeing all the boys again. It’s a little bit frustrating that the season is finished now for me, so unfortunately I’ll have to wait until after the summer to play again.
“Right now I’m looking to go back into full training for the first day of pre-season and take it from there. I should be on target for that and if I can make that, I’ll be happy.”
The 24-year-old midfielder looked on from the sidelines as his team-mates clinched Celtic’s eighth successive league title with a 3-0 win at Pittodrie two weekends ago. Christie has been instrumental to the Hoops’ silverware success this season, scoring the winning goal in the League Cup final, and he admitted he achieved more than he initially thought possible at the onset.
“Even though I’m missing out on the end of the season, I’ll look back on the whole season very positively,” he said. “At the start of the season I was struggling to believe that I could push into the team.
"To be at the other end of the season now and look back and see the impact I've made has been brilliant. It’s what I wanted when I signed. It pushes me on now for next season and makes me excited.
“I’ve been buzzing watching the boys from the sidelines. They’ve been magnificent in wrapping the league up and are now going into a huge cup final to end it all. It’s frustrating to miss games, but I still feel part of it and I’ll be supporting the boys.
“Everyone wants to play in these big games, especially cup finals and big games in the league. I was lucky enough to play in the last cup final and I enjoyed that, so it certainly feels like I’ve had my part to play this season.”
Christie will look on from the stand this Sunday when the Hoops face Hearts in the final league game before being presented with the Premiership trophy. Despite the ups and downs of the season, Christie said the team and fans can enjoy a positive end to the campaign.
“When you look at it now, we’re going into the last two games of the season with a Trophy Day and a cup final,” he said. “No one else has that, so I think at the weekend Glasgow will definitely be green and white.
"It’ll be brilliant for me and all the boys. My family are all coming down and I’m really looking forward to it.”
