BRENDAN RODGERS is considering allowing Ryan Christie to leave Celtic on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old midfielder has struggled for first team appearances since his £500,000 arrival from Inverness Caley Thistle in 2015.

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes, who has also been linked with Kris Commons, is interested in giving some much-needed game-time to the talented Highlander as the Dons aim the ensure that they finish the season as runner-up to Celtic in the league.

Competition in the Hoops midfield has become more intense since the £2.8million arrival of 19-year-old Ivorian Kouassi Eboue.

Parkhead gaffer Rodgers admitted yesterday players could be leaving before the end of the month.

He said: “There will maybe be one or two who will go out on a loan basis. I suspect there will be some change in the squad before the window closes .”

Christie has scored one goal in seven appearances for the champions this season.
