    Haha aye but I don't get it, what's wrong with his hair? It's just sort of like Armstrong's and he gets a song in honour of his!

    Think he showed what Rodgers was meaning by playing the Scottish way.

    No composure and terrified of making a mistake. Kicked it long in Astana anytime he was pressed and today would only pass to Lustig or Gordon and looked scared to even take a touch at times.

    Tierney was doing it for a bit early on after he burst on the scene, but managed to knuckle down and work like * on that part of his game.

    Ralston will do the same, because Rodgers and his backroom staff will help him, and Ralston will put in the work to develop his composure.

    Remember, this is the lad's virgin season in the man's game - plenty of developing to do.

    One of the best things about being so far ahead of the rest is being able to give our own young players more gametime, because there's so much quality around them and not a crushing pressure to grind out points for fear of some other team overtaking. If Rodgers really believes in him, glad to see him get time. He'll develop and be better than he would have been able to become 10 years ago, even if he doesn't become a regular first-team member. It's a great situation to be in.

    Aye that's what am saying.

    Rodgers is absolutely correct in what he said. McGregor is the only Scottish player I can remember who looks completely in his element under pressure.

    The likes of Forrest, Tierney and Griffiths have came on tenfold in that aspect of their game.

    I don't think Ralston is quite ready yet and * knows what is happening with Gamboa.
    I would like to see another experienced right back brought in before the transfer window closes.

    Annoyingly, Kenny * Miller. Was gash for us in all the * games, comes to games like Old Firm and Champions League? He stepped up in the pressure situations.

    * scored 4 goals for us in a season, 2 Champions League, 1 Old Firm and an SPL or something like that.

    Him and Maloney. Who is another one come to think of it, best technique of any Scottish player in the last 20 year for me.

    This is a young boy, everyone needs to remember that when things don't go too well either for him or the team in general. Don't compare him to Tierney, that would be completely unfair on Ralston. The fact BR is putting him in the first team at this tender age is a credit to the boy and should be seen as such. As supporters we cannot knee * react to results we think are poor or we will put these young kids under too much pressure and never blood you talent.
    Please, we need to not over react to what we deem as a poor result.

    Aye, the night we bear Benfica 3-0, Kenny Miller, Shaun Maloney and Stephen Pearson all played immense. Probably, to this day, our best attacking performance in the Champions League groups.

    I'm not convinced by him yet but the lad needs games. Hope he can prove me wrong, defensively he seems ok but looks nervous with the ball. Plenty time for him to improve.

    That was especially great as I didn't think that team had a performance like that in them..Portuguese teams don't travel well in general tho..

    I'd say Lyon at home was the best I've seen us play in the CL, they were an excellent side and we pressed and played them off the park.
