Celtic boss Neil Lennon has revealed that he has given Ryan Christie some advice after the Hoops’ recent 3-1 win against Sarajevo.
Should the player pay heed to the advice, it could improve his game. Lennon wants Christie to have more attempts on goal, and described the player as ‘too unselfish’.
“He should have scored”
“He’s a great player and I said to him after the game that he should have scored” Lennon said, as reported by the Evening Times.
“There was one when he tried to flick a pass to Scott Sinclair instead of shooting. At times, he’s probably too unselfish, but he was full of it and played well.”
Could be even more influential than last season
Lennon was full of praise for Christie, but should the player listen to his manager he could have an even better season than last season.
Last season Christie made his breakthrough into the Hoops team and scored 11 goals. When you consider that he didn’t break into the team until November, that is a great record.
However, with the attacking football the Hoops play, Christie could reach 20 goals this season, should he stay fit.
That will be what Lennon is hoping the player does. Should Christie stop being ‘unselfish’, he could find the back of the net more often.
Christie may have broken into the side under Brendan Rodgers. But if he listens to Lennon he could improve his game under the current Hoops boss.
