The Scotland international had entered the final six months of his deal at Parkhead and even though he had played an important role under Ange Postecoglou, there was always the worry for the Hoops that Christie would go.
And, the 26-year-old has moved on, with the Cherries announcing his arrival on their official site this evening.
Whilst some Celtic fans weren’t too disappointed to see the player go, it’s fair to say that his arrival went down well with the Bournemouth support on the whole, particularly as it emerged they had beaten Premier League Burnley to his signature.

It had been stated that Scott Parker’s talks with Christie had convinced the player that he would benefit more playing on the south coast.
Here we look at some of the reaction to his arrival from Twitter…
Things you love to see🍒👏🏼

I’m sure he will flourish with decent coaching. Lennon did his best to destroy him last season. Would like to have kept him.
