Ralston in car crash
Celtic’s Anthony Ralston was involved in a car crash close to the club’s Lennoxtown training ground on Tuesday afternoon (The Daily Record).
The defender escaped unscathed, but a 55-year-old man was taken to hospital. He is said to be in a ‘serious but stable’ condition.
A club source said: “He was not injured. Thankfully he did not need to go to hospital.”
Police are continuing their appeal for witnesses.
Forrest injury update
James Forrest’s hamstring injury is not as bad as first feared and the winger could return to face Valencia in the Europa League next week (The Scottish Sun via The Scotsman).
He was forced off on Sunday against St. Johnstone after breaking the deadlock in the 2-0 win.
The news will be music to Hoops fans’ ears, with Forrest having been a key player this term.
Honest Scott Bain has revealed that he only ended up becoming a goalkeeper as a result of his own ‘laziness’ (The Daily Record).
Bain has forced his way into the team following the winter break, and is yet to concede for Celtic in his run of five games so far.
The former Aberdeen prospect has impressed with his ability to play with the ball at his feet as well as tend the goal.
And Bain, who has admitted wanting to play outfield as a kid, has spoken about how he ended up between the sticks.
He said: “I think I became a goalkeeper out of laziness, to be honest. Even when I was a kid at Aberdeen I used to join in with the first team and play outfield if they never had enough bodies.
“I was third-choice goalkeeper there so if they needed an extra players I was always happy to join in. It’s great at Celtic to be involved in possession and passing every day.
