After the game, Christie was the subject of abuse from his own supporters who were angered by his red card.

However, he received plenty of support from within the Celtic fans community also, as several fans hit back at those criticising the player.

@InstaCelts said: “This is absolutely disgraceful the fact that Ryan Christie had to deactivate his Twitter account due to getting abuse about getting sent off today.

“Everyone makes mistakes and the players are people so they don’t deserve it that bad that they have to take down their accounts."

While @Buzzbomb11 added: “Can’t believe the stick Ryan Christie is getting, some people have short memories.”
