  • WITH the Scottish football calendar postponed due to the current coronavirus crisis, the Celtic View team is catching up with the players to ask them your questions. Next up in our ‘Four from the Fans’ series is Ryan Christie who, like everyone at Celtic Football Club, hopes all Hoops fans stay safe during this period of uncertainty.

    IF YOU COULD GO BACK AND PLAY IN ANY HISTORIC CELTIC GAME, WHICH WOULD IT BE?
    @virginm62294885
    ‘Hmmm. That is a good question. It’s maybe a little bit harsh to say Seville, because we got beat, but that would have been an incredible experience. I was only eight-years-old back then. Sadly, I wasn’t there at the game but my dad was over. I remember him coming back with a Henrik Larsson mask in his suitcase for me - that was my present from his trip away! You think back to that team, the players and the talent they had was absolutely ridiculous. Imagine playing behind the likes of Henrik Larsson in his prime? That would have been pretty amazing!’

    WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MOMENT IN A CELTIC SHIRT?
    @Leahh63x

    ‘Another good question. The Aberdeen League Cup final, maybe. That was good because the feeling at the final whistle of finally helping to achieve something at the club was amazing. Both Lazio games were massive as well. Even going right back to my first goal for the club against Motherwell. I’d had a couple of chances to score earlier in the game, and as you’d imagine, I was desperate to get my first Celtic goal. It was the last game of the season, and while it didn’t mean that much to the team overall, I was still really pleased on a personal level.’

    WHO’S HAD THE BIGGEST INFLUENCE ON YOUR CAREER SO FAR?
    @PaulMcT7

    ‘I’d definitely say my old man. He’s pushed me since day one, and he was my coach all the way from about 11-years-old through to 15/16. A lot of the time I did not like that at all because it was constant football, there was no off switch from it, but, with hindsight and power to look back now, I obviously realise how important that level of commitment from a young age was. I would say that without him I wouldn’t be as successful as I’ve been today. I owe him a lot for all the pushing he did when I was younger.’

    FAVOURITE PLAYER GROWING UP AS A CHILD?
    @murraycfcx

    'I had a quite few, actually. When I was really young, it was Henrik and the players in that great Celtic team. Ronaldinho was another when I was younger. And then when I got a bit older, it was Ronaldo at Man United. I’ve been lucky enough to have watched Messi for his whole career, who is one of the best players to have ever lived. I feel it’s special to have been alive when he’s been kicking a ball, to be honest!'
