CELTIC will await news of Ryan Christie’s knee injury after the Inverness Caley Thistle midfielder was helped off during the Highlanders’ 3-1 victory at Motherwell.
Caley Thistle assistant manager Brian Rice said: “He’s in a brace and he’s hobbling. It looked like a twist at the time. His knee just gave way. We will need to wait until it settles down to see the extent of the damage.
“I don’t think there’s any chance of him going with the Under-21s from what I’ve seen. It’s a huge blow for the kid and, of course, he is a massive player for us.”
“I came out of it still finding a lot of good in it. The result is obviously hugely disappointing, it’s not the result I expected or wanted. The game got away from us.
“You can argue all you like about the penalty, it hit his arm, but he’s not looking at the ball. I don’t know, maybe it is a penalty.”
On the red card, McGhee added: “I’ve just watched it. Mick’s put his arm across and has got him on his shoulder and used his body strength to get across the ball. He is watching the ball.”
