CELTIC have issued a statement on Ryan Christie's self-isolation, saying they intend to "open dialogue with the Scottish Government and other authorities" regarding self-isolation procedures.

They say that Christie adhered to all protocals, and are seeking more information on players who "continue to deliver negative test results".

Christie was in contact with Stuart Armsrong, who has tested positive or Covid-19, during his time away with the Scotland camp. As such, he and Kieran Tierney have been told to self-isolate for 14 days.

Celtic have already been hit with the news that Odsonne Edouard is self-isolating after testing positive for coronavirus earlier in the week.

In the statement, they say: "Following today’s news regarding Ryan Christie, he has reiterated his adherence to all relevant protocols while on International duty.

"In light of this, Celtic confirmed today that it aims to open dialogue with the Scottish Government and other authorities to fully understand the self-isolation procedures for those players who continue to deliver negative test results, as Ryan has."

Christie said: "I am so disappointed by the events of today and the potential effects this could have on my country and club. As I have operated within these protocols for such a long time now, I am well aware of all the rules and social distancing from team mates has become the norm and something I have observed.

"The situation is very frustrating, particularly as I don’t believe I have done anything wrong.”
