Celtic: Anthony Ralston feared his Parkhead career was over

Celtic defender Anthony Ralston feared that his career at the club was over last summer before he has become one of the main players under Ange Postecoglou. The defender made just one appearance last season when a bunch of players was missing due to the coronavirus. Ralston came through the Celtic academy and enjoyed successful loan spells at Queens Park, Dundee United, and St Johnstone.

“It was natural for me to think it (my Celtic career) was coming to an end,” Celtic defender Anthony Ralston said. “I’ve been here since the age of eight and coming through all the years at the academy, it comes with a lot of ups and downs. It was a hard season last season, especially when you’re not playing and you’re not involved. I spent a lot of time on the training pitch and put my work in there. When you’re not playing it’s not easy at times but you need to keep yourself right.”

“At the beginning it was new and I had to learn it (the new role). Every day in training it was something we worked on,” he added. “When I found myself in midfield at the beginning it was strange, I’ve never had to check around about me as everything is usually in front of me. I’m enjoying it, I think it goes back to the clear messages the gaffer gave and the instructions of how he wanted it done. It instilled that confidence and belief that you can go and do it.”
