Video: Anthony Ralston belts out YNWA as he takes in special Celtic scenes
Celtic right-back was videoed singing You’ll Never Walk Alone in a class clip that showed him taking in the Parkhead scenes on Saturday.
Ralston has played a key role in the Hoops’ Scottish Premiership title win this season. The Lennoxtown academy graduate has featured 47 times this season and has a new long-term contract to boot [Transfermarkt].
And Ralston was captured enjoying every moment as a special rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone rung around Parkhead after Saturday’s 6-0 win over Motherwell. You can view the video for yourself below:
Ralston has regularly rotated at right-back with Josip Juranovic this season and hs now finally won over the trust of the Celtic support.
12 months ago it looked as though Ralston’s departure was certain. His one-year contract extension last year was met with dismay given he had yet to prove himself or show himself worthy of any game-time this season.
But Ange has unlocked Tony’s full potential this season, and it’s even won him international recognition too as he prepares for a potential World Cup playoff clash next month.

If there’s one player in that Celtic squad you didn’t think would be here at the start of the season, it was almost certainly Ralston.
After all, the right-back hadn’t made the most positive of contributions since making his Celtic debut back in 2016. Outside of that, a couple of unspectacular loan spells with the likes of Dundee United and St Johnstone failed to reap rewards either.
In fact, Ralston spent the entire 2019/20 campaign with St Johnstone. He failed to overly impress and then ended up spending most of last season rooted to the Celtic bench.
His breakthrough this season has been absolutely astronomical. nobody could’ve foreseen it, and whilst there’s a general acceptance that Juranovic remains our first-choice at right-back, Tony has proven to be a more than capable deputy.
He now goes into the summer in a totally different place compared to where he was 12 months ago. He can head for his holidays knowing his future at Celtic Park is secured with UCL football now there to look forward to.
Hopefully, it’s an opportunity he’s able to take with both hands once again next year.
