CELTIC manager Brendan Rodgers has shared his thoughts on Anthony Ralston, who recently signed a contract extension.
Celtic confirmed on Tuesday that Ralston has agreed to a new four-year deal, ensuring his stay in Glasgow until the summer of 2027.
He further mentioned Ralston’s commitment and love for the club and his readiness to contribute to Celtic’s success, “When I spoke to him a little while back, he was so happy to commit himself to Celtic. He just loves being a part of the club. He loves being here and is ready to contribute. I’m very happy that he’s decided to sign on.”
The announcement of Ralston’s new deal has elicited mixed reactions. Ralston, who is just 24, made a significant impact in his early days at the club during Ange Postecoglou’s term in charge. and did feature in high-profile games for Brendan Rodgers during his first spell at the club.
Some argue that Celtic should sign new players to challenge and provide backup to Johnston, while others believe Ralston is a suitable second choice.
Ralston’s commitment to Celtic, his childhood club, and his potential for improvement make him a valuable member of the squad. It’s worth noting that he contributes to the UEFA homegrown quota, a big benefit considering how few players currently do.
