Celtic missed their chance to go two points clear of Hearts at the top of the Scottish Premiership on Sunday, having to settle for a 0-0 draw away to top-flight new boys Livingston.
They did however reach the number one position for the first time this season, now leading Craig Levein’s outfit on goal difference, two points ahead of third placed Rangers.
It was a frustrating afternoon for Brendan Rodgers’ side and their supporters, with a number of the top performers during Thursday’s match against RB Leipzig failing to reach the same tempo and commitment as in that win.
One player who did get pass marks from many fans was midfielder Ryan Christie, who again showed passion and desire in the middle of the park.
He’s been a revelation of late, helping the team to wins in three competitions.
Despite the draw, some found a silver lining in his performance took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Ryan Christie is class.

Unfortunate comparison, but Ryan Christie reminds me a little of Craig Burley. A player who transcends physical and technical mediocrity to be in the right place at the right time. He gets shit done.

Ryan Christie got headbutted and didn’t fall to the ground and start rolling around. He didn’t even flinch. Big man behaviour

I don’t reckon we’re playing as badly as some folk seem to think. We’re still passing it well at times, just need that wee spark. Ryan Christie’s still different gravy to watch.

Ryan Christie is tremendous; skilful, hard in the challenge and a wee nip😩 top drawer
