Should Celtic sell Christie this month?
The report adds that Christie is considering his options and would consider walking away if Celtic accepted an offer for him.
Celtic has to retain it
While Christie may have come off the boil in recent months, he has not scored in the Scottish Premiership since Aberdeen in late October, there is no question that he is a player who consistently scores a ton of goals and assists every season. .
Nicknamed A “coach’s dream” of Chris Sutton, he’s been one of the first names on the team sheet this season for Lennon, missing only two games in all competitions, and both were also for imposed reasons.
His former teammate at Celtic, and also Scottish midfielder Stuart Armstrong, said: “Especially these last few seasons, he’s taken it to another level with Celtic and it’s been fantastic.
“Even in European games, he stands out. Has a lot of energy. His technique is perfect, especially his first touch at speed, that’s incredible. It just poses that attacking threat that all players like to have. “
It would be a big howl from the Hoops to let him go right now, especially when considering he’s only 25 years old and still has the peak years of his career left.
