According to the Scottish Sun, Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie could still play in the Scottish Cup final.

Christie had to be taken off during Celtic’s match against Aberdeen last weekend, after suffering a terrible facial injury.

Celtic went on to beat Aberdeen 3-0 without Christie to reach the final of the Scottish Cup, but there were fears that the midfielder would be out for the season.

 

Christie looked in a terrible way during the contest, but Celtic are optimistic over his recovery.

The 24-year-old could yet return to action this season, as his lay off may only be around a three week one.

Celtic don’t play the Scottish Cup final until May 25th, and there is growing confidence around the Bhoys that Christie will be available.

Neil Lennon is said to be prepared to give Christie every chance to prove his fitness.

And if the Scottish international is available then it will be a boost to Celtic’s hopes of lifting yet another trophy.
