To suggest that Celtic are in an annoying place would be putting things lightly. Neil Lennon’s team is considerably off the beat and his fiercest rivals now only need seven points to win the title.
Whether or not Lennon will be at the club next season remains to be seen, but plans are reportedly being worked out on the transfer market.
On the blackboard
Like Lennon, Ryan Christie is a man under fire in Parkhead. The winger has had a torrid season and has only scored a solo goal in his last 2. 3 Departures.
Considering you found the network in twenty Sometimes in the last period, that’s a terrible record for a player with so much potential in the last third.
The low point of his season undoubtedly came in a 1-0 loss to Ross County on Sunday night. The Scotsman was unfortunate in front of the goal and somehow managed to shoot five Shots off target. The worst came nine minutes before half-time when he shot the ball over the crossbar and left the stadium when he was given the opportunity from just a few meters.
Should Celtic sell Ryan Christie?
Get rid of it!
One man who could walk through the door this summer is Burnley winger Robbie Brady. The Hoops wanted to sign the Irishman in the summer window last year, but failed after the 54-game international signed a new contract at Turf Moor.
However, he is out of contract again in a few months and therefore the Bhoys hope to revive his interest, according to Sun..
Signing the 29-year-old to a free contract is pretty risk-free, but it’s hard to suggest that he would make a particularly good signing. Acclaimed of Martin O’Neill for his ability to deliver and crossover, his creative numbers aren’t really much.
That said, his arrival could end Christie’s stay at the club. With David Turnbull and Tom Rogic sometimes playing wide areas ahead of him lately, he has been in and out of the starting lineup.
Lennon’s patience with the Scotsman is clearly wavering and the interest in another player capable of playing on the flanks attests to this.
Nick Hammond may not be signing a high-quality player, but he could appease Hoops fans by pushing Christie aside as a result. After all, apparently there is interest from other places in their services.
