  • Ryan Christie comes clean on his Toilet Roll Challenge!

    Ryan Christie comes clean on his Toilet Roll Challenge!

    By: Joe Donnelly on 26 Mar, 2020 13:01

  • WITH everyone observing self-isolation and social distancing measures from their respective governments, footballers the world over have been keeping themselves busy with the Toilet Roll Challenge – a social media keepie-up contest that swaps footballs for loo roll.

    Also known as the Stay At Home Challenge, the likes of Lionel Messi, Marcus Rashford and Real Madrid’s Marcello have wowed us with their white sheet skills, and our own Ryan Christie’s effort was a belter.

    In collaboration with a friend, the 25-year-old midfielder passed a roll of toilet paper back and forth in his flat, before sending a looping effort straight into a miniature door-hung basketball net.

    It all looked great, but the big question is - how many takes unfolded before the final cut?

    “I don’t have a number," said Chrisite. "It took us about 20 minutes, maybe half-an-hour, which I didn’t think was too bad! This was before the lockdown, so my mate was visiting and we decided to do it just before he left. He was leaving at around three o’clock, so we started it at around half-two. We’d set ourselves that time limit and we managed to do it.

    “To be fair, though, the one we shared was a bit of a fluke – the plan was for him to header it in at the end. I told him to go beside the net, but my shot went straight in. So we took that!”

    Christie also explained that he and his Celtic team-mates have been staying in touch regularly via group chats and over the phone, as they work on individual training regimes at their respective ends. 

    He added: “You can keep in touch in whichever ways you can. Besides the group chats, a few of us have been playing the PlayStation. A bit of FIFA, a bit of Fortnite, a bit of Call of Duty: Warzone. I’m decent at FIFA, but I’m hopeless at the other two. I’m still to get a victory in Warzone, so that’s a bit of a sore spot for me.”
