Cameron Carter-Vickers has been of the top arrivals in the Scottish Premiership this season and the American defender was recognized for his efforts in league-leaders Celtic’s backline.
Carter-Vickers was one of six Celtic players named in the PFA Scotland Team of the Year, the club announced Tuesday. He was joined by Josip Juranovic, Jota, Kyogo Furuhashi, Callum McGregor and Tom Rogic in the Team of the Year honor.
The Tottenham loanee has been a key player in Ange Postecoglou’s side and could still lift the Premiership title later this spring. Carter-Vickers, 24, has totaled 39 combined appearances for Celtic across all competitions, lifting the Scottish League Cup in December. Carter-Vickers also appeared in the UEFA Europa League, playing in five of six group stage matches.
In league action, Carter-Vickers has contributed four goals, a career-high for a single season. Celtic has continued to hang onto first place in the league table over rivals Rangers, leading its Old Firm rivals by six points with four matches left to play.
Carter-Vickers’ stellar loan spell has Celtic remaining interested in acquiring him permanently from Tottenham this summer, a source close to the player confirmed to SBI earlier this week. He has one season remaining on his contract, but could earn a new deal if he joins Celtic outright from his parent club in England.
Celtic faces Rangers on Sunday in Glasgow and will clinch the title with a victory over Giovanni Van Bronckhorst’s side with three matches to spare.
