CELTIC have confirmed the Ryan Christie suffered multiple facial fractures following the disgraceful assault he endured at Hampden on Sunday in the Scottish Cup semi-final.
Christie headed the ball but the Aberdeen thug Dominic Ball smashed into the Celtic midfielder’s face and knocked him unconscious. Christie received treatment for seven minutes on the park before being stretched off.
Now having had his injuries examined Christie will undergo surgery on Thursday before he begins the recovery process. Neil Lennon has suggested that Christie may be able to return for the Scottish Cup Final on 25 May but that seems unlikely at the moment.
Nothing from completely classless Aberdeen FC or their ‘selective hearing’ manager on their fans abusive chanting at the weekend. And we’ve still to hear what the SFA’s Compliance Officer Clare Whyte makes of their FOUR red cards on Sunday.
Does she believe that Aberdeen FC were acting in the best interests of Association Football in Scotland?
We’ll soon know.
Best of luck for Thursday young Ryan.
