Video: Red-Hot Ryan Christie Fires Celtic Ahead in Betfred Cup Final

Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie continued his sensational form this afternoon at Hampden against Aberdeen in the Bedfred Cup Final, by scoring the Hoops’ opening goal.

The Scotland international has cemented his place in Brendan Rodgers’ starting XI this season after his future at Parkhead looked far from certain in the summer, and today he hammered home just how brilliant his recent run has been.

Kept in the team ahead of club captain Scott Brown, Christie pounced in added-time at the end of the first-half to outfox the Dons defence before beating Joe Lewis at the second-attempt – sending the Celtic end at the national stadium into rapturous celebrations:

That’s now five games in the last 10 matches for the 23-year-old, and that doesn’t even take into account his recent stats and excellent build-up play.

Perhaps fortunately for the Celtic hierarchy, Christie has signed a new contract at the club, but just how important a player is he now for the Bhoys?
