Christie eyes Boro exit

03 Sep 2006 - 13:27:01

Striker Malcolm Christie has warned that he may be forced to leave Middlesbrough in a bid to secure regular first-team football.

The 27-year-old has been with Boro since January 2003, but has suffered a number of injury problems that have stunted his progress.

Now he faces a battle for a starting spot due to the presence of the likes of Mark Viduka and Yakubu and accepts that his time at the Riverside could be drawing to a close.

He said: "I have a year to salvage my career at Middlesbrough, it has been a nightmare at times for me.

"In the last two years I have had an injury hell and thankfully that is behind me now.

"But I can't get in ahead of Mark Viduka and Yakubu, who are world-class.

"It does not seem to matter how well I do in training or when I come on in games. I only ever get a chance in the last quarter."
