Paying £5 million for Ryan Christie seems a no-brainer for Celtic star’s admirers

Like many Celtic players, Christie did not have the best year last season. Nevertheless, he is a very talented player.

So spending £5 million seems like a no-brainer, particularly for Burnley and the Saints.

Neither club has really got stuck into the transfer window as yet. So adding a player with his ability to make things happen in the final third would be a boost.

Obviously, he could soon be available on a free. But neither club will want to be playing catch up in the second-half of the campaign.
