ANTHONY RALSTON

Defender
Date of Birth: 16 Nov 1998
Debut: v St Johnstone 11 May 2016
Nationality: Scotland
Signed: 16 November 2008

The talented full-back has been on an incredible journey with Celtic which has taken him from ball boy to facing the elite of Europe in the UEFA Champions League.

At just 18-years-old, Anthony featured regularly in the first-team squad at the begining of the Hoops’ 2017/18 Double Treble season and started the home match against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League Group Stage, impressing in his task of marking Neymar, who at that time was the most expensive player in the world. His progress has however been hampered by injury since then and with game time at a premium he has had loan spells at Dundee United and St Johnstone having previously being on loan at Queen’s Park prior to his Hoops debut.

Back in August 2017, he admitted it was a dream come true when he opened his goalscoring account for his boyhood heroes during a comprehensive 5-0 victory over Kilmarnock in a League Cup tie at Celtic Park.

β€œIt was a dream come true for me as somone who has grown up supporting Celtic. It was an unbelievable feeling, to score at Celtic Park.”

Country Bhoy
Scotland, under-21 coach Scot Gemmill named Ralston in his squad for the UEFA Euro 2019 qualifier against The Netherlands which the young Scots won 2-0 and he now has five caps at that level to add to U19 and U20 appearances.
