Raffaele went on to play for English side Bradford City and Cheltenham Town before returning to Scotland to play in the Premiership with Ross County. In two years with the Scottish side, Raffaele was part of the squad that won the Scottish League Cup in the 2015-16 season.

Raffaele then returned to Scottish side Livingston in October 2016 and went on to win back-to-back promotions again, winning promotion from Scottish League One as champions in the 2016-17 season and winning promotion to the Scottish Premiership in the 2017-18 season by defeating Partick Thistle in the Play-Off Final.
