Celtic have signed defender Cameron Carter-Vickers from Tottenham on a four-year deal.

Carter-Vickers, 24, made 45 appearances for Celtic and scored four goals, including one on his debut against Ross County and a vital winner against Rangers at Ibrox.

“I’m delighted to join Celtic and really couldn’t be happier,” he said.

“I’ve loved every minute of my time at Celtic so far and was keen to be a part of the club’s future.

Ange Postecoglou admits his first season at Celtic was the most difficult he has ever experienced but insists his team will be even better next year

A year ago, Celtic turned to the relatively unknown Ange Postecoglou to revitalize a club in turmoil and he silenced doubters by winning the Scottish Premiership title and League Cup in his debut season.

Postecoglou’s start to life at Parkhead did not start well as he failed to win his first three games, resulting in a Champions League elimination and an opening day loss to Hearts in the league.

However, the Australian always insisted he would not give up his footballing philosophy of attacking, entertaining and relentless football and piece by piece rebuilt a struggling side that was blown aside by Rangers last season.

The title win came on a Wednesday night in May at Tannadice, with the manager promising it was just the beginning for him and his burgeoning talent at Celtic.
