Former Inverness Caledonian Thistle player Ryan Christie is set to get a cherries tattoo after Bournemouth won promotion to the Premiership.
The Daily Echo reported that the Scotland international, who joined Bournemouth from Celtic last summer, is set to get some cherries inked on his left thigh, right next to a set of bananas and the word ‘joy’.
The nickname of Bournemouth is the cherries.
In an interview with the Daily Echo in November, Christie was quoted saying he would get a tattoo of cherries if the club won promotion to the Premiership.
With Bournemouth finishing in second place in the Championship and gaining promotion to the English Premiership, Christie says that he will keep his promise.
Christie told the Daily Echo: "The text has been sent to the tattoo guy.
“It was sent two days ago, he said he would book me in some place, so yeah, there will be a pair cherries on me!
“It will go on my left leg, right next to my bananas – a fruit theme going on!
“It will add to the randomness that is my tattoos.”
Christie played 39 times for Bournemouth this season scoring three goals after joining the club this season.
After coming through the Caley Thistle youth academy, Christie played in the first team between 2013 and 2015 before moving to Celtic.
He spent a period on loan back at Inverness as well at Aberdeen before becoming a regular first team player at Celtic between 2018 and 2021 winning the Scottish Premiership, Scottish Cup and League Cup medals.
