Cameron Carter-Vickers Makes SPFL Team of the Week

Cameron Carter-Vickers has been included in the cinch SPFL Team of the Week after his showing against St Mirren on Saturday night. The big centre-back has been like a rock all season and is so essential to Ange’s current Celtic team. He was a hefty investment initially but it is paying dividends for us on a weekly basis now.

Assistant manager, John Kennedy has been speaking so highly of both Cameron and Carl Starfelt as our great defensive record continues to roll on game by game. The two have been immense at the back along with Joe Hart since he signed from Tottenham Hotspur and we couldn’t live without this three in all honesty.

With the best defensive record in the Scottish Premiership last year, we look all set to make that two times in two seasons as we steamroll out way through games at a phenomenal rate. Our defence is often overlooked but the guys in the backline have been just as crucial as our attacking players since Ange has come in.

Carter-Vickers won the Dafabet Man of the Match Award for Celtic in our Scottish Cup Fifth Round tie with Stephen Robinson’s men too, as voted for by the supporters and it was well deserved. The Fridge was everywhere on Saturday and marshalled his teammates and the opposing team’s forwards exquisitely as we sailed to a 5-1 win.

It’s just a shame we gave away that penalty late on!

I'm a Garngad Bhoy through and through. My first ever Celtic game was a friendly against Italian side Parma at Celtic Park, in 2002. Currently a student of English Literature and Education at the University of Strathclyde for my sins. Favourite game would be a toss up between beating Manchester United with that Naka freekick, or the game against the Oldco when Hesselink scored in the dying seconds. I'm still convinced Cal Mac is wasted playing that far back.
