Celtic centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers put in an outstanding performance to help secure a vital 2-1 win over archrivals Rangers yesterday afternoon.
As well as scoring what turned out to be the winning goal, he was dominant at the back, helping to prevent their opponents from equalising in the second half.
Carter-Vickers is on loan from Tottenham until the end of the season, but the Hoops do have the option to buy the American international on a permanent basis, and fans on Twitter want the club to sign the defender as soon as possible:
Absolutely no doubt about it. Jullien and Welsh as back ups for Europe 💚👍

Agreed if I had to pick one of our loan signings it’s CCV after today’s performance he’s more important that having Jota imo

A lot will depend on the player. Wolves, Watford, Leicester and Bournemouth have all been linked with the 24-year-old in recent months so he has a decision to make on whether staying in Scotland or returning to England is a better career move.
Celtic supporters will be keeping their fingers crossed that Carter-Vickers sees his future beyond the summer at Parkhead.
