Chris Sutton has questioned the decision to omit Celtic’s Cameron Carter-Vickers from the PFA Scotland Player of the Year shortlist. The four-man shortlist was drawn up yesterday and the American was not included with Tom Rogic, Callum McGregor, Regan Charles-Cook and Craig Gordon making up the candidates.
The major omission was Celtic’s outstanding Carter-Vickers.
The best player in Scotland this season has been Cameron Carter-Vickers by a stretch… how is he not on the list?? https://t.co/TLwZO19G5y

Since arriving on loan from Spurs, CCV has made 42 appearances in all competitions, scoring four times. The big defender netted what proved to be the winner at Ibrox as Celtic took a step towards regaining the Premiership title.
Celtic had courted the USA International for a few weeks last summer as Ange continued his rebuild. The deal eventually went through at the 11th hour of last summer’s transfer window with Celtic and the player agreeing to a one-year loan deal with an option to buy at an agreed fee at the end of this season.
Celtic will hopefully be the prize pot at the end of the campaign for automatic Champions League qualification, to buy Cameron Carter-Vickers and Jota on permanent deals.
