RYAN CHRISTIE spoke of his delight at signing his new deal to say at Celtic for an additional three seasons this afternoon. He was speaking to the official club website before heading off to join up with the Scotland squad for the double header against Israel and Albania.
On the form that Christie has been in over the past three weeks, you would imagine that even Alex McLeish has noticed and will start him in these two must win matches.
“I’m delighted,” Ryan said. “Ever since I started to play a bit more in the team, I’ve been happy to make an impact. Celtic is the club I want to continue playing for. It’s such a big club in Scottish football and it’s a delight for me to sign and keep playing for Celtic.
“I’ve enjoyed my football ever since I’ve come to the club. The manager’s been brilliant with me and I’ve really enjoyed playing under him and working with all the staff.
“I have a really positive feeling right now and I’m enjoying my football at Celtic. There’s no reason why I’d want that to change and I’m delighted looking at what’s ahead.
“I’ve really enjoyed coming in and I’ve taken a lot of confidence from that. It’s helping my game right now and I’m definitely looking to improve. I feel like there’s plenty more to come for me which is a good thing. Hopefully now I can kick on now and become a mainstay at Celtic.
“The fans have been brilliant. You’re always going to get that from Celtic fans. You put in a few good performances and the reception makes you feel like you’re on top of the world.
“The game against Leipzig was the best atmosphere I’ve ever played in and this just tops off an amazing week for me.
“It was such a great night for everybody. It was my first true taste of a European night in a Celtic strip here and I absolutely loved it. Hopefully there’s more to come and I’m really excited.”
