Injured Celtic defender Anthony Ralston has come out of a car incident unscathed after the player was involved in a collision on Tuesday.
At the time the police tweeted out a traffic response to the incident for drivers to avoid the area.
East Dunbartonshire Council tweeted details of the accident, saying: “Police Scotland has closed the A891 from Scott Avenue, Milton of Campsie, through to the A803 Kilsyth Road between Kirkintilloch and Kilsyth due to a traffic collision. Traffic will be required to go to Milton of Campsie via Kirkintilloch.”
The crash happened near Lennoxtown and Ralston is said to be fine according to one club source who Record Sport has spoken too: “He was not injured. Thankfully he did not need to go to the hospital.”
Ralston is currently undergoing treatment for an injury which will see him out for a lengthy period of time. It’s likely the player was coming too or from Lennoxtown when the accident occurred but there are very few details other than the player is okay.
Last year there was a car incident involving Odsonne Edouard and Olivier Ntcham when a car came off the road near Celtic’s training base. The two Frenchman were thankfully unscathed.
Let’s hope anyone else caught up in the accident is okay too.
Ralston, 20, has been at the club coming through the youth ranks and looked to be getting his opportunity in the first team before an injury halted the unlucky youngster.
Celtic have brought in Jeremy Toljan at right-back for the rest of the season to provide competition for Mikael Lustig.
