While predicting Brendan Rodgers’s side to win 3-0, Walker named 21-year-old Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie as the key player.

“When Brendan Rodgers looks to his subs bench, Ryan Christie is someone who can make an immediate impact,” Walker wrote on Skysports.com. “His pass for James Forrest's goal against Alloa Athletic was magnificent.”
