Celtic defender Cameron Carter-Vickers has outlined his ambitions for the rest of the season at the club.
Since making his switch to the Scottish champions a permanent deal last summer, his importance to the team has continued to shine as he is a total rock at the back for Ange Postecoglou’s side.
His presence was missed when he missed a few weeks in late September/early October but he returned and was handed the captain’s armband in the absence of Callum McGregor.
Carter-Vickers isn’t ever likely to receive the plaudits that he deserves but remarkably the 2-0 win against Kilmarnock was the 38th time that both he and Carl Starfelt had started together in defence as Celtic have failed to lose in any of those matches.
It was pleasing for many Hoops fans to see the 25-year-old defender feature for the USA at the World Cup in Qatar but now his sights are set on achieving even more success at Celtic as he knows how important it is that the club challenge for every competition which they are in.
Ange Postecoglou’s side have a chance to book their place in the first cup final of this season as they take on Kilmarnock in the Viaplay Cup semi-final at Hampden this weekend. it was the first trophy that the former Spurs defender won at Celtic and they would love to retain it.
“We are all aware at Celtic that you are expected to win everything,” said Carter-Vickers as quoted by Football Scotland.
“We are going to go into that game fully focused and do our best to get into that Final. Every competition that we compete in, we want to win games, we want to win the trophy. 100 per cent. That one is no different.”
As the Hoops are still currently competing in all three domestic competitions in Scotland, the talk of trebles has already begun but the team isn’t getting too ahead of themselves.
“Not really. For us, it is just about taking a game at a time and focusing on our performance.
“Hopefully we can continue to perform at the level we have done and maybe improve on that if possible.”
