    Obviously now he does.

    But when he broke through and became a key player, he should've been offered a respectable contract. He supposedly on about £6k per week and he is one of our better players.

    I want him gone too but this could've all been avoided if we treated him fairly. We would all be * off in his position. It's another example of gross mismanagement at the club that has cost us money and points, to make Lawwell feel like a big man saving pennies.

    But aye, * Christie, nothing else to see here.

    Aye, * Christie. Arrogant wee * swaggers about the park thinking he's Messi. He had a purple patch and him and his daddy giving it big licks about going down to England to take over the EPL. He's the most self centered * we've had at Celtic for years, everything he does is for him.

    From memory, he said something along the lines of Ryan will play in the premier league or look to play in the premier league.. something like that.

    I get why people think like this and I thought like that too, but it's the wrong take IMO. I think we ripped him off when he was deserving a decent contract and it's been a strained relationship ever since. I'm fed up with us * off our own players so Lawwell can look after his own bottom line. We'll blow thousands on Duffy's salary but someone like Christie gets offered pennies?

    The * thing is Lawwell get an erection when he can keep a Scottish first team key player on £6k p/w and what makes it worse is the fans all turn on the player when they don't sign a new contract. Why not just give * players what they're due and make the money back by selling them for a fee? It's so * how we're run.

    He threatened to become a class player for us.

    Just shows that there aren't enough Browns or Forrests in this world.

    Ryan Christie was offered a new contract over a year ago that was worth a minimum of £8k extra per week.

    He refused to sign it. The same contract is still lying on the table.

    He’s had his 15 minutes of being more than just a “meh” player, he should just go with his dad down to Southampton or Burnley then Sevco.

    thats an odd thing not to sign a deal to double his pay packet at the cost of adding another 1 or 2 years to his contract

    seems hes desperate to get out, * him, really wish we didnt play him as much this season, not out of badness just i think hes been * id rather have seen young henderson get some game time or even that young winger that we loaned out recalled, christie has been pish for most of the season

    Where do we think he’ll sign up for? I think due to his inconsistencies and jobby all round play this year no top 12 EPL team will go for him. Maybe a promoted championship team like Norwich maybe or someone who just avoids relegation who know they can pick him up for like £5-8 mil?

    That sounds about right. Southampton is the obvious destination.

    I would agree with that. One of the promoted teams or a team that just avoids the drop seems like the most likely destination for something about 6m or so I would guess.

    I honestly don't care where he goes I just want us to get some money for him and get him out of our club. He's all about himself and it's been oozing out of his play this season.

    He has destroyed his reputation amongst Celtic fans. He's not the same player he was and I think he's maybe allowed himself to believe a lot of the hype that had been surrounding him when he was playing well.

    Next season we need players that are a positive influence around our club, who want to be here and improve for the team and then personal growth will follow and possibly a lucrative move elsewhere.

    We all know we are a selling club and our strategy is to improve players and move them on for a profit. That's why the whole scenario surrounding Christie has come from the player. It's in our interest to sell him if a good offer comes in but the player has been agitating for a move when we needed him the most during our quest for a historic ten league titles. In my opinion it's unforgivable and I'll be glad when he's gone.

    I think Euro 20 has a big part in who he signs for. If he plays well and scores then top 10 prem team is a possibility. I do think we could still get £5m minimum if he has a fairly unmemorable tournament, it's a fairly low risk for lots of those teams.

    Useless *. Seen today's performance coming a mile away, yet it still happened. And it'll happen again.
