Anthony Ralston has been one of the major winners at Celtic since the arrival of Ange Postecoglou, and a recent stat from WhoScored proves just how impressive the 22-year-old has been this campaign.

As per WhoScored’s website, the right-back currently has the highest rating out of any player in the Scottish Premiership, with Ralston sitting at a 7.91 rating.

The Scotland U-21 international has been a key clog for Celtic this campaign. Indeed, Ralston has already played 19 games this season for the Hoops. With the youngster likely to feature again this evening against Hibernian.

With talk of a new contract for the defending heating up, Ralston more than deserves a fresh deal with Celtic, and this latest revelation from WhoScored more than proves his quality this season.

Indeed, summer signing Josip Juranovic has been pushed out to the other flank based on how impressive Ralston has been this campaign. And you can bet Celtic fans on social media are buzzing over this revelation.
