Rodgers receives Carter-Vickers and Ralston boost from Lennoxtown

Cameron Carter Vickers has returned back to ‘full training’ duties over the weekend. He and fellow defender Anthony Ralston where apparently put through their paces at Lennoxtown as they battle back to fitness form their respective injuries.

Previously it was widely reported that CCV was ahead of schedule and had resumed light training duties not so long ago, so the latest injury update is promising on both counts as we get closer to the start to the season against Ross County, or as Celtic fans call it, Flag Day.

Anthony Ralston getting back up to speed is also good news considering we are missing Alistair Johnston for a few more weeks, so having him available for selection soon is another plus.

But the return of The Big Strong Man CCV, would be even mores significant for Brendan Rodgers. Cameron is a superb player and our defence is not the same without him.

It’s maybe asking a bit much for him to be ready for the first game of the new campaign. But he should be well ready and up to speed for the important trip to Ibrox at the start of September, and of course the start of the Champions League campaign.

So with more signings heading through the door imminently and the return of CCV and Tony Ralston not far away, it’s some good news that maybe will even cheer up the pessimists in our support.
