  • Anthony Ralston signs new three-year deal with Celtic

    Anthony Ralston signs new three-year deal with Celtic

    By: Martin Dalziel on 06 Jun, 2016 18:14

  • PROMISING young Celtic defender Anthony Ralston has today signed a new three-year with deal with the club.

    The 17-year-old has enjoyed a tremendous term at Paradise which culminated in him making his top-team bow in the penultimate match of the season away to St Johnstone.

    Having impressed during a loan spell at Queen’s Park in the first half of the campaign, where he picked up valuable competitive experience, the right-back was brought back to Paradise by Ronny Deila, only to suffer two consecutive injuries.

    Refusing to be deterred, however, Ralston made a swift recovery and within a matter of months he was back playing with Development Side and training with the senior squad.

    And in the 76th minute of the Hoops’ clash at McDiarmid Park, Ralston got the rewards for his endeavours by coming off the bench to replace Saidy Janko and fulfil a lifelong ambition.

    It was a moment to treasure for the Uddingston Bhoy, who has been part of the Celtic Youth Academy since the age of eight, and now he will be aiming to maintain this progress and make inroads into Brendan Rodgers’ side over the coming campaign.

    Meanwhile, versatile midfielder Innes Murray has also pledged his future to the Bhoys today after extending his contract at the champions.

    The 18-year-old was an important member of the Development Squad which managed to go throughout the entire league campaign without defeat as they stormed to the title.

    He also featured for the young Hoops in European competition during the previous campaign, including the UEFA Youth League and the Premier League International Cup.
