Ryan Christie is ready to commit his future to Celtic now and sign a long-term deal with the Scottish Champions, handing the club a huge boost ahead of today’s Betfred Cup Final.
The 24-year-old has been in sparking form with Neil Lennon’s side this season and is hoping to be rewarded with a new deal, as reported in the Scottish Sun.
“I am playing for an unbelievable team and playing some of the best football of my career.
“So I can’t think of a better place to kick on.”
Christie confirmed that there has been some discussions about extended his deal at Celtic Park, after signing a new one last year.
“It is still kind of very early days, just a few chats, that is it. I think now with the amount of games in December it is probably the last thing on my mind.
“I just want to focus on the football with cup finals and other big games coming up, and more towards the end of the season that will take care of itself.”
Christie has scored 17 goals so far this season and no doubt his form has gained admirers in England so the move to seal a deal is good business both for the player and club.
Christie was the match winner in the 2018 Betfred Cup Final after netting against Aberdeen and he will be hoping for more of the same going into the game with Steven Gerrard’s side today.
