Anthony Ralston Plays Down Neymar Ignoring His Handshake

Anthony Ralston has played down Neymar ignoring his handshake after Celtic‘s heavy defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.

One positive of the Hoops losing 5-0 to the French giants was Ralston’s approach to playing some of the world’s best players.

He came directly up against Neymar and had Kylian Mbappe to deal with at different points and despite the two being very influential in the win, the young right back coped admirably.

His laugh in the face of the world’s most expensive player has led to a viral reaction and video of the handshake snub post-match has been used to highlight Neymar’s poor attitude.

But Ralston, 18, doesn’t care too much about that, saying post-match, per dailyrecord.co.uk: “It wasn’t a big deal. I won’t dwell on that too much.

“If that is the case, and that is the way he wants to be, then fine. I don’t care.

“Like I said, everybody is different, so I won’t lose any sleep over it.”

Given the popularity of Kieran Tierney, you can understand the strong reaction from fans to Ralston and his performance against PSG last night.

But will he continue to play for Celtic this season? He’d made just five appearances this season before last night’s game and could find himself back on the bench when Brendan Rodgers has a full compliment of defenders to pick from.
