Exclusive: Robinson wowed by Celtic star who has gone from 'Forgotten' man to 'Driving force'
Paul Robinson heaped praise on Celtic attacker Ryan Christie following his performance in his side’s 4-1 win over Ross County on Sunday.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the ex-England No.1 sung the praises of Christie and insisted that the midfielder was still getting better.
Christie scored a brace against Ross County to take his goal tally for the season to 15 and the 24-year-old is now currently the club’s top scorer for the 2019/20 campaign.
Robinson revealed that he thought Christie had managed to essentially become the driving force of Neil Lennon’s side after being the forgotten man a little over a year ago.
When asked about Christie being the star man at Celtic currently, Robinson told Football Insider: “It was like a year or so ago when he scored the winning goal in the League Cup, which started the first leg of the treble last year, he’s gone from the forgotten man to an important player to almost the driving force.
“I think he’s got better and is still getting better, he had better stats than James Maddison at one point, I think for his goal tally this year, he has already got 15 goals and nine assists, he is scoring for Scotland as well.

“He seems to have added an extra-yard of pace to his game, he maybe 24, but I think he is improving and is still getting better.”
Christie has regularly featured for Lennon’s side this season as he has racked up 27 appearances across all competitions.
The 24-year-old playmaker did manage to feature 23 times for the Hoops in the league in his 2018/19 campaign, but only 10 of his appearances saw him complete 90 minutes.
