The future of two Celtic players on-loan at other clubs has come under the spotlight, with vastly different outcomes suggested.
The Herald are reporting quotes from Brendan Rodgers which suggest that Scott Allan, currently on-loan at Hibernian will be allowed to leave the Hoops in the summer, whilst Ryan Christie, who is on-loan at Aberdeen, will return to the Scottish Champions in the summer.
The news on either player isn’t a surprise, Allan has no future at all with the Hoops, and is better off with Neil Lennon’s side, whilst Christie could have a role to play in what will be a defining season for him.
The 23-year-old has been a regular for Aberdeen in his 18 month loan spell with the Dons, and will face a battle to get into the Hoops first-team.
However, with the Champions League qualification process beginning on the 10th of July, the Hoops’ resources will be pushed to the limit, as they also juggle playing domestic matches.
Christie seems certain to get some playing time in those matches, and he should be looking to cement his place in the first-team when he gets the chance.
It’s a make-or-break season for Christie in Glasgow and it is up to him to show that he has the ability to make it with the Hoops.
