Ralston, who made his debut for Celtic in May 2016 as a substitute in a match against St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park, has made ten appearances for Brendan Rodgers’ side in total, scoring once in a League Cup win over Kilmarnock.

He will team up with former Parkhead team-mate Paul McMullan, who joined the Terrors in June last year.
