REPORTS suggest Aberdeen have been looking at a way of keeping Ryan Christie at Pittodrie beyond this season after the young midfielder has continued to impress this season.
However, it’s believed Brendan Rodgers wants Ryan back at the club this summer to evaluate him. Celtic are spoiled for choice in attacking midfield but with injuries and Patrick Roberts heading back to Manchester City – Christie could grab his chance early on in Celtic’s next campaign.
McInnes is a big fan of Ryan and they sorely missed him when he couldn’t play against his parent club at the weekend.
With Aberdeen trying their best to keep their mantle as Scotland’s second force – they will have to do it with one of their top player’s next term.
Not the news Dons supporters want to hear, especially after defeat on Sunday.
