Ryan Christie sends message to Celtic fans on Twitter after making Bhoys debut

Ryan Christie donned a Celtic shirt for the first time against St. Johnstone on Saturday.

Celtic coasted to a 3-1 victory over St. Johnstone on Saturday afternoon - and the game saw midfielder Ryan Christie make his debut.

Two goals from Gary Mackay-Steven and a strike from Stuart Armstrong gave the Bhoys all three points at Celtic Park, building on 4-1 and 8-1 wins over Dundee United and Hamilton Academical respectively.

The Bhoys still sit above Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, and manager Ronny Deila was able to use the final stages against St. Johnstone to give a debut to a summer signing.

Midfielder Ryan Christie emerged through the ranks at Inverness, and having impressed with Caley Thistle, he was snapped up by Celtic on deadline day back in September.

The 20-year-old was though sent straight back to Inverness to continue his development with John Hughes' men, and after picking up an injury, he has now returned to Celtic.

In the dying embers of the game against St. Johnstone, the young Scottish playmaker came on as a substitute to make his Celtic debut, with fans no doubt excited to see him in action.

After the game, Christie took to Twitter to state that making his debut was a 'great feeling', and was happy to play his part in a convincing 3-1 victory.

Will Christie be a success at Celtic?
