Surely Ryan Christie deserves a season at Celtic to show what he can do? It was a sound enough idea to buy him and immediately loan him back to Inverness. He has flourished at Aberdeen, but with only 10 Celtic appearances in what will be three years since joining the club, he has not been given a platform to show what he has.
I get that competition is great for the creative mid spots at Celtic, but our plan should be to develop players into first team regulars, or enhance their value and sell them profitably. Ryan is doing well enough at Aberdeen to attract interest from the Football League, but with a few medals and perhaps Champions League experience under his belt, he would be a more valuable asset.
Celtic players are worth more than Aberdeen players, just as Manchester City and PSG players are worth more than Celtic’s. Bring Ryan in for next season, make a decision on his future, or work to enhance his value to the club.
