New Celtic signing Ryan Christie sends message on Twitter after completing deadline day transfer

Celtic Stands

Celtic have snapped up Inverness midfielder Ryan Christie.

Celtic have confirmed on their official website that they have signed Inverness Caledonian Thistle midfielder Ryan Christie - though the youngster has gone back to his former club on loan.

Christie, 20, was born in Inverness and has come up through the ranks with his hometown club, becoming a key player under John Hughes with Caley.

However, his impressive displays have attracted plenty of interest, and it's no surprise that Celtic have no won the race for his signature.

Under Ronny Deila, the Bhoys have made a concerted effort to sign more young Scottish players, and having brought in the likes of Gary Mackay-Steven, Stuart Armstrong and Scott Allan in 2015, Christie is the latest to add to the ever-growing list.

Having completed his move on deadline day, Christie went down to the wire, and whilst the Bhoys are delighted to have completed the deal, they have loaned the midfielder back to Inverness in order for him to continue his development.

Christie took to Twitter after signing his contract with the Bhoys, admitting that his transfer was a 'dream come true', and couldn't wait to get started - even though he will only link up with Celtic next summer.

 

With a big future ahead of him, Christie could be a star of the future for Inverness - and fans will now be keeping a keen eye on his progress this term.
