Ryan Christie completed his fairytale rise in Celtic colours this season by scoring the winning goal in the Scottish League Cup final against Aberdeen.
Just a couple of months ago the midfielder looked like he could be surplus to requirements at Celtic Park, having failed to convince Brendan Rodgers he was deserving of first-team action.
However, bursting onto the scene with a phenomenal substitute semi-final performance against Hearts, the 23-year-old kickstarted a revolution in the Hoops midfield to become one of the first names on Brendan Rodgers’ teamsheet.
He was immense again today, not just because of his goal but also his overall workrate and use of possession.
Where he goes from here is anyone’s guess, but there’s every chance that he improves even more now he’s playing regularly alongside better players than ever before.
These fans can’t believe his transformation and took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his current form…
For Ryan Christie to keep out Ntcham and Brown in a final is unbelievable .. What a turnaround for the player. He's been brilliant.

Ryan Christie still has a long way to go, but if we had signed him in August for £8million from Italy or France, we would be raving about him. Another example of Rodgers making Ronnys players better

The Bhoy has grabbed his chance with both hands and looks fucking brilliant now…
That goal today, he hit his first shot well, but to get it together to hammer in the second was top class
