The Scottish Cup semi-final was tight, as Ange put it, it was a game of moments and the Ibrox club just edged it.
However, the game slowly slipped away from Celtic when they lost their first choice right-back with around 25 minutes left to play.
With limited options, Ralston had to go to left back and Welsh had to play right back.
It was a large part of our undoing and it shows from the stat below.
Those injuries hobbled us.

This isn’t an article to get at either Ralston or Welsh. They were both played out of position in extra time and struggled as a result.
We weren’t at our best but we looked more assured with the Croatian on the right and the Scottish left-back in his natural position.
An injury to either one would be a blow going into the final five games.
