BRENDAN RODGERS has revealed he has had a face to face chat with Ryan Christie ahead of the player potentially signing a new deal in the coming weeks.
Christie has impressed in the past fortnight and is now in-line to receive a new deal at the club.
With Christie very optimistic about re-signing with the club the Celtic manager has been full of praise for the player’s commitment and aptitude to this point.
He has come from seemingly nowhere to being on the cusp of becoming an important Celtic player.
Rodgers believes that’s all down to Ryan’s attitude, which has got him to this point.
With the manager, player and club ready to do a deal, the Celtic manager confirmed what Charlie Christie mentioned earlier this week by letting the fans know he had a long chat with his midfielder,
“I had a really good chat with Ryan during the week, talking about how he’s doing. Reinforcing the plan we have for him.”
“He’s taken his opportunity well, did the things we asked him to do and you can see he’s a great player.
“He has the confidence to fill the jersey now.”
