Ryan Christie makes a bold claim about Celtic trio - including himself

The 20-year-old came on for the Bhoys against a side he was only recently playing for.

Celtic youngster Ryan Christie sees a bright future at Parkhead with the amount of young talent the Scottish champions possess.

Indeed, Ronny Deila's side beat Inverness Caledonian Thistle 3-0 on Saturday afternoon and Christie was a second-half substitute, alongside fellow youngsters Scott Allan and Patrick Roberts.

And Christie has heaped praise on the duo (alongside himself), suggesting the three of them - along with Celtic's other youngsters - represent a bright future for the Parkhead outfit.

Celtic's win has them six points clear of Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership, also boasting a far superior goal difference as they sit at the top of the table.

And the claim of a bright future at Celtic certainly isn't a false one. The Hoops do boast plenty of promising young talents.

It's simply a case of using them and giving them game time. Roberts, meanwhile, is a loan signing, and may therefore take some attention away from the Bhoys' more homegrown youngsters.

He should be with Celtic for a while, though, and should have plenty to offer Deila's men.
