Christie joined Celtic in September 2015 and made his debut in January 2016, but despite being in several of Brendan Rodgers’ squads this season, the 21-year-old has found game time hard to come by.
That has obviously been a factor in deciding to move to Pittodrie until the end of the season, but what should have been a pleasant day was ruined when this Tweet from 2012 started being re-tweeted from Christie’s account:
Since then, the tweet has been deleted, and now Christie’s entire account seems to have been shut down.

In case you’re curious, the match Christie was tweeting about was that season’s Scottish Cup semi-final between Aberdeen and Hibs, with current Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths scoring the Edinburgh side’s winner in a 2-1 victory.
We wonder just how Christie will be received by the Aberdeen supporters when he makes his first appearance for the club.
