Ange makes Carter-Vickers call as Mooy misses out

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has confirmed that Cameron Carter-Vickers hasn’t travelled with the team to Germany. Tomorrow’s clash between the Scottish Champions and the Bundesliga side is the first of the doubleheader against RB Leipzig.

The manager also confirmed that Australian midfielder Aaron Mooy misses the game after picking up an injury midway through training.

The biggest miss is certainly Carter-Vickers. The defender missed the games against St Mirren and Motherwell through injury but the manager stated that he was not far away from making his return

Celtic are at McDiarmid Park on Saturday before hosting the Germans at Celtic Park in the Champions League on Matchday Four. The games against the Bundesliga outfit will be pivotal in deciding whether Celtic are involved in European football beyond Christmas, with Ange’s side sitting one point ahead of Marco Rose’s side.

Ange will want his best defenders available for the games this month as they will determine Celtic’s progress in a number of competitions. Although he will need to navigate the game tomorrow without CCV.

Risking burn out or further injuries for Carter-Vicker will certainly have been on Postecoglou’s mind as he looks to navigate Europe, the league and the League Cup.

Also missing for a Celtic are Liel Abada and Carl Starfelt.
