Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie insists Brendan Rodgers was joking about the joke regarding his dad.
After the Scottish League Cup win on Sunday, the Celtic manager joked that Christie would no longer be known as Charlie’s son but his father would be forever known as Ryan’s dad.
Charlie Christie signed for Celtic in the 1980s but failed to make an appearance for Bhoys.
“He (Charlie) was joking with me about it,” Christie said, according to Daily Mail.
“He has helped me so much in my career and it was nice to almost pay him back here.”
Speaking about becoming a regular player for Celtic as well as becoming a regular for Scotland, he added:
“It’s been a great spell. I have been wanting to do things like this ever since I signed for Celtic.”
“Obviously, it’s been a very long road to get here, but it’s nice to not just play but make an impact of games.”
“That’s my job as an attacking midfielder to score goals and chip in with assists.”
“When it comes in a Cup Final, that makes it even better.”
“I had great memories winning a trophy with Inverness and it was very frustrating when I couldn’t play with Aberdeen,’ Christie said about winning with Inverness.”
“So to come back to this stage and manage to get silverware is amazing, especially given it’s been a long road since that time of my career at Inverness.”
