Ryan Christie had made a very bright start under the management of Ange Postecoglou last season and many felt that Celtic needed to hold onto him. Unfortunately, he would be gone very soon, departing Parkhead in order to join Bournemouth in the Championship, in a move that raised a lot of eyebrows.

A lot of eyebrows were raised when Ryan Christie decided to leave Celtic last summer to join Bournemouth. He had made a great start under the management of Ange Postecoglou but was in the final six months of his contract with the club. As a result, a move away from Parkhead suited both parties at that point of time.
Like many other Celtic players, Ryan Christie did not have a good 2020/21 campaign, as the Hoops finished trophyless and 25 points behind the Rangers in the Premiership. The Scottish international made a splendid start under the management of Ange Postecoglou though and looked like the perfect fit in his system. Unfortunately, the midfielder would end up leaving for Bournemouth though.
Ryan Christie did not have the best 2020/21 campaign, like the rest of the Celtic squad. But at the start of this season, he had looked like a player transformed in Ange Postecoglou’s system. He was believed to be in the last six months of his contract then but his displays under the new manager had raised hopes that he could end up extending his deal with the Hoops. That was not to be though and the Scottish international ended up joining Bournemouth.
The 2020/21 season was expected to be a historical one for Celtic. The club had won the league title for nine straight seasons and done so in dominant fashion, and most people expected them to complete the 10 in a row, something that had never been done in Scottish football. We all know how it went from there, and it was not a happy ending for the Hoops to say the least.
It is easy to forget how much Celtic has changed since last season. In fact, Callum McGregor, Greg Taylor and Tom Rogic, are the only players from Neil Lennon’s side, that continue to get regular playing time at Parkhead. That should not come as a major surprise though, considering how the Northern Irishman’s last season in charge of the Hoops ended up transpiring, with the club going trophyless and finishing 25 points behind the Rangers in the Premiership.
Scott Parker backed Ryan Christie to find the net more regularly after the Scotland midfielder finally broke his Bournemouth duck in the Championship leaders’ 3-0 victory over 10-man Cardiff. Top-scorer Dominic Solanke celebrated his 18th goal of the season before an Alex Smithies own goal helped Parker’s men move...
Ryan Christie's football life moves to a different beat these days. Away to QPR on 27 December, at home to Cardiff three days later and, then with the new year beginning, the arrival of Peterborough the day after the Old Firm do battle at his former home in Glasgow's east end.
Celtic received £2.5m and could still receive another £1.5m for Ryan Christie, according to a report. The Daily Record revealed today that the attacking midfielder, who had months remaining on his deal, completed a move on deadline day worth up to £4m. The club were, however, paid £2.5m by Bournemouth to sign the Scotland Internationalist.
Frank McAvennie has launched a surprising attack on Ryan Christie, saying that Celtic are better off without the playmaker. Christie sealed a move to Bournemouth on deadline day worth £2.5m as Celtic looked to cash in on the player that had just a matter of months remaining on his deal.
