Barry Ferguson Says Hoops Star “Wants to try” EPL
Celtic midfielder, Ryan Christie’s future has been one story the seems to be neverending.
Many Celtic fans would have been glad to see the back of him after last seasons displays in a Hoops jersey, but as the Scotland midfielder enjoys a mini revival of form under new gaffer Ange Postecoglou, the supporters are now desperate to see the midfield playmaker extend his stay beyond January.
With less than four months left of his contract, Christie has been free to speak to clubs since June but as yet, has to reveal where his future lies.
There is still no news on whether Celtic have offered him a new contract but former Rangers midfielder, Barry Ferguson, has said on Go Radio, that there could be a way of fulfilling Christies apparent goal of playing in the English Premier League and helping the team win the league.
Ferguson, speaking on Go Radio, said, “He is a good player. There’s no doubt about it. On form he can win you games.
“And it seems to me that Postecoglou thinks a lot of him.
“And he’s like any player, Ryan Christie. He’ll want to try and put his wits against the best players and the best teams in the world.
“And that’s certainly the English Premier League. But there may be a way to work around it. Sign another year and a half extension, then come next summer if he still wants to go, we won’t really stand in your way and there’s a set fee of three, four or five million pounds.
“It’s not a lot of money in terms of the English Premier League.”
