RYAN CHRISTIE has admitted he has selfish concerns as well as wanting Celtic to reach the Scottish Cup Final.

The midfielder, on loan from the champions, scored with a crafty free-kick in Aberdeen’s 3-2 win over Hibs to push the Dons towards Hampden on May 27.

But he’ll have to wait until after today’s game between Brendan Rodgers’ men and  Rangers to see if he has a chance of playing in the Final.
If Celtic win, he will not be allowed to face his parent club.

Asked if that gave him a dilemma, the Highlander joked that it was a difficult question he had been trying to avoid.

He said: “It’s a strange one. I’ve been asked a few times what my thoughts are and basically I’ve just kept quiet.

“I’m not too sure what to say because obviously it’s a great bunch of boys at Celtic and I wish them all the best, but at the same time it’s sometimes a selfish game.”

Christie is with the Pittodrie club until the end of the season and said he was proud to have made a valuable contribution.

He added: “I’m happy I’ve made an impact and that’s what I wanted to do when I came here.

“As much as I could help Aberdeen towards their targets, one of which was reaching the final and lifting a Cup.

“I’m happy in myself that I’ve done that.”
