According to WhoScored, the youngster took one shot, played four key passes, had a pass accuracy of 92.2%, won two headers, took 69 touches, and made three tackles, one interceptions and two clearances.
Scotland international midfielder Fletcher was following the match, and the 34-year-old Stoke star - who won the Premier League title five times and the Champions League once with Manchester United - was impressed with the display produced by Christie.
Fletcher said on Sky Sports Main Event on Saturday evening (9:49pm, November 18, 2018): “I thought that Ryan Christie was fantastic in midfield. I thought he set the tempo. I thought he was involved in all the goals.”
Jiri Jarosik eyes Celtic return
Meanwhile, Jiri Jarosik has said that he would love to manage Celtic in the future.
The 41-year-old former Czech Republic international was on the books of the Glasgow giants from 2006 until 2008.
Jarosik told The Scottish Sun: “When I am ready, I hope to have more experiences and, of course, managing Celtic one day would be perfect.
“Let’s not get carried away. I’d love to have a top coaching career and Glasgow is a great football city. But I need to take things step by step. I have a long way to go, but a return to Celtic in the future? Why not?”
