Celtic 22-year-old has massive decision to make in the summer after Shearer recommendation

One player who could have an interesting summer is Celtic’s on-loan midfielder Ryan Christie.
The attacker will return to the Hoops after spending 18 successful months at Aberdeen when the season ends.
The 22-year-old will have to decide when he gets back to Glasgow if his future lies with Brendan Rodgers’ side, or if he is better off going to a team where he will be guaranteed first-team football.
Despite all of Christie’s talents, he is unfortunate to be in competition with the likes of Tom Rogic, Charly Musonda, Stuart Armstrong and Callum McGregor, for a place in the Hoops midfield.
Former Aberdeen man Duncan Shearer believes, as quoted by the Press and Journal, that the player should look for a move to England, as it would benefit him as a player.
It remains to be seen what the Hoops manager will do with Christie, perhaps a good indication will come if the player is involved in the four rounds of Champions League qualifiers that the Bhoys will have to navigate that begin in July.
If he plays in those matches, Christie has an immediate future at the club, if not, perhaps he is better off moving for another year on loan.
It looks like it could be a career defining summer for the Scotland international.
