Hull reject off contract Middlesbrough striker Christie

Hull City have rejected the chance to sign former Middlesbrough striker Malcolm Christie after running the rule over the former Derby star.

The injury-prone 28-year-old has been training with the Championship outfit in a bid to earn a full-time deal but manager Phil Brown has decided to turn down the chance.

Christie was released by Middlesbrough in the summer after failing to sustain a regular spot at The Riverside during his four-and-a-half-year stint, although his cause was not helped by suffering two broken legs and a fractured foot.

"We've had a good look at Malcolm but decided not to give him a deal," Brown told BBC Radio Humberside.
