Celtic defender Cameron Carter-Vickers returned to training this week after missing a league match and a Scottish cup match due to injury.
The American international had missed two matches, but is now back in full training and ready to make his return to the pitch. Eagle-eyed viewers spotted CCV in Oh Hyeon-gyu’s exclusive interview with Celtic TV.
Starfelt and new signing Kobayashi were the two players who stepped up to fill the void left by the American, and they formed a formidable partnership in the heart of the defence.
Starfelt has been a mainstay in the Celtic defence since he signed for the club last summer. He partnered up with new bhoy Kobayashi, who signed for Celtic in January.
Kobayashi, on the other hand, is a relatively new signing for Celtic, and his performance in the absence of Carter-Vickers was first class. The Japanese international was able to read the game well and was great with the ball at his feet, despite his defensive attributes not being tested too much.
Having CCV back will be a big boost for Postecoglou, with the defender so impressive this season. However, it will throw another question at the manager, who will start alongside the former Spurs player.
