Pretty recently, Ralston was handed a new contract by Celtic and he was tied down to the club for another season. Celtic took this decision despite the fact that the right-back barely featured in the first-team in the 2020/21 campaign.

1 of 8

Celtic fans can you get 8/8 on this quiz on forgotten players. First up, who is this?

But since Ralston is Celtic’s only out-and-out option in the whole squad, it is understandable why he’s still at the club. are looking to sign Brandon Soppy and his Rennes teammate Sacha Boey, but there is no guarantee that they’ll sign him. So to keep Ralston as a safety net would make sense or they’d be left with no proper right-back in the squad.

So even though fans may not be happy with him, he may still be a squad option.
