CELTIC right-back Anthony Ralston admits the pressure at Dundee United is a great experience.

And the 19-year-old on-loan defender is aiming to help the Tannadice into a promotion play-off place, despite the 1-1 draw with Morton at Cappielow at the weekend.

The Tayside outfit have now dropped to fifth in the Championship – a massive 21 points behind runaway leaders St Mirren and nine adrift of second-placed Livingston.

Csabo Laszlo’s side have been victorious in only one of their last 10 league games, but Ralston, who missed six months of the Hoops campaign with a knee injury after playing in the opening Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain, is relishing the situation.

He said: “It’s good experience to be involved in these types of games because I have never been involved in a team that’s pushing for promotion.

“It’s also learning to come into a team that have expectations from fans to get to that next stage.

“I’m enjoying that side of things, but it’s not nice when you are not getting the results you are looking for. But, hopefully, I can help the team get to where they want to be.

“It takes that one win to get the confidence and belief instilled back in and get a run going from there. I think that’s what everyone needs right now.

“There’s a good belief about the team, but it just needs that win to get everyone on a run.”
