A dangerous driving trial involving Celtic defender Anthony Ralston has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Ralston is the alleged victim of a collision with accused Ross Craig during February last year.

Prosecutors claim Craig, 57, drove his Jaguar dangerously on the A803 near Milton of Campsie, in East Dunbartonshire.

It is said Craig drove at “excessive speeds for the road conditions” and failed to keep control of the vehicle.

The vehicle allegedly swerved onto the opposing carriageway and had a “head-on collision” with a car being driven by Mr Ralston.

The Celtic star, on loan at St Johnstone, was said to be behind the wheel of a Renault Trafic at the time.

Craig did not appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court today for the trial.

Prosecutor Cheryl Lyons put the trial off as she was informed that Craig was self isolating due to coronavirus.

A new trial date for later this year was set by Sheriff Ian Miller.
