CELTIC manager Ange Postecoglou confirmed that Carter-Vickers’ season was over after he faced The Rangers at Hampden.
The 24–year–old American defender has been a standout performer for the Bhoys this term, helping them win the Scottish League Cup and stay in contention for a domestic treble.
After fighting through the injury for the second half of the season, Carter–Vickers is now expected to be out for 3–4 months following knee surgery, a source close to the player confirmed to SBI Soccer.
This would mean he will miss the club‘s final six matches, and could miss the start of next season. This will have been why Ange Postecoglou was keen for the defender to head to surgery sooner than he did.
Cameron Carter-Vickers has also been in the USMNT picture since joining Celtic on a permanent transfer last summer, but his injury will force him to miss the USMNT’s CONCACAF Nations League and Gold Cup involvement.
We wish Cameron Carter–Vickers a speedy recovery and look forward to having him back in the Hoops next season.
