WORRYING news this morning concerning Celtic’s young right back Anthony Ralston who was involved in a car accident yesterday afternoon near the club’s training base at Lennoxtown, according to reports.

“Police Scotland has closed the A891 from Scott Avenue, Milton of Campsie, through to the A803 Kilsyth Road between Kirkintilloch and Kilsyth due to a traffic collision. Traffic will be required to go to Milton of Campsie via Kirkintilloch.”

source is quoted giving some information on the accident.

“Anthony had not long left Lennoxtown when the crash happened.

“Celtic had been training there in the morning.

“Thankfully he’s not been hurt though he would have got a huge fright.”

It seems that The Celtic player was involved in a head-on collision with another car, whose driver has been taken to hospital.

“A 55-year-old man, who was driving a Jaguar XJR, was taken to hospital in a serious but stable condition following the collision near Lennoxtown training centre,” STV are reporting.

Last year Olivier Ntcham and Odsonne Edouard were involved in a raid accident near Cumbernauld and in that incident, like yesterday’s accident, no-one was hurt.
