21-year-old Celtic midfielder makes a confident comment

Ryan Christie is ready for the challenge to establish himself in the Celtic first team.

Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie has been quoted as saying by the club’s official Twitter page that he is ready to make himself a regular in the first team.

The 21-year-old is one of the more promising young players in the current Celtic squad, but he is largely a squad player for the Bhoys at the moment.

The Scotland Under-21 international joined Celtic from Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the summer of 2015 and stayed on loan at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium until the January transfer window.

Christie has made it clear that he is ready to step up to the challenge of playing regularly for the Bhoys.

Celtic are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 63 points from 28 matches.

Ronny Deila’s side are just a point ahead of second-placed Aberdeen, who have played a game more.

The Glasgow giants will return to action on Saturday afternoon when they take on Partick Thistle away from home at the Firhill Stadium.
