Cameron Carter-Vickers signs new five-and-a-half-year contract

Cameron Carter-Vickers has signed a new five-and-a-half-year contract which will see him remain at the club until 2029. That’s a long term commitment from both the club and the player and one that looks likely to see the United States defender play out his career as a stalwart on the Celtic defence.

After being loaned out repeated by Tottenham, CCV found a home at Celtic Park where he is fully appreciated by the club, his team-mates and the supporters and Celtic is a place where honours can be won and the highest level of European football sampled.

The 26-year-old American internationalist  has so far made 101 appearances for Celtic, scoring five goals – the first of those coming on his debut for the club against Ross County in September 2021. That’s only the start ad we can expect many more appearance over the rest of this decade for Celtic’s Big Strong Man.

Cameron told the official Celtic FC website: “I am really delighted to sign this new contract with Celtic. I have loved everything about the club from day one and I am so pleased to have been part of some real successful times across the last few years. You always play the game to win, and being part of some great winning moments with Celtic has been really big for me, a real honour.’

“I have had a great welcome and support from the Celtic fans ever since I came here. We all know the love and passion our fans have for the club, there is nothing better than playing at a packed Celtic Park and I am delighted to be playing my football here.

“I have really enjoyed working with the Manager, the staff and great team-mates and we will all be doing everything we can to bring our fans more and more success over the next few years.”

Brendan Rodgers also expressed his delight at this deal being agreed.: “This is great news for us all that Cameron has extended his contract with the club. He has been an absolute rock for us since he joined the club and has played to such a high standard so regularly, week in, week out.

“He has been such a pillar of strength in our defence and a real leader in the team – I know he is held in such high regard, too, by his team mates. His qualities as a player, his personality and his absolute commitment to the game make him a real joy to work with.’

“I know Cam loves the club and the city and really has made Celtic his home and we are delighted to have him here with us. There has been a lot of talk about the interest in him from elsewhere, but all he has done is get on with his football, decide where he wants to be and we are delighted that he sees his future at Celtic.”
