One of the biggest success stories of Ange Postecoglou’s time as Celtic manager is the development of Ralston.
Coming into the campaign, there were not many hopes surrounding the defender. But back then, the Hoops did not have any other recognised right-backs in their squad, leading to Ralston getting a run of games in the first-team.
It is safe to say that he took the opportunity with both hands and has been one of the most consistent players for Celtic this season.
But with Greg Taylor returning from injury, Josip Juranovic has moved back to right-back and the Croatian appears to be ahead of Ralston in the pecking order right now.
But one thing that Ralston has shown this season, is the ability to make something happen out of nothing. He has come up with important goals and assists, throughout the season and thus, he might be exactly the type of player that Celtic need against Livingston, in an away game that is expected to be very tight.
Jota has been absolutely brilliant during his time at Celtic. But it must be said that since his return from injury, he has struggled to show the form that he had in the first half of the campaign, when the Portuguese winger was arguably the best player in all of Scotland.
That does not mean that Jota has not been doing a decent job, but he just is not performing at the same level right now that he was earlier on in the campaign.
If Celtic are to unlock what is expected to be a tight Livingston defence on the weekend, they will need someone like Jota though, who is another player who has the ability to conjure up a moment of magic out of nowhere.
There will be a lot of expectations on the Portuguese winger’s shoulders. Let’s see if he can end up delivering on them come Sunday.
