Celtic have found themselves in the race to win the Premiership title this season under the management of Ange Postecoglou.
With 30 league games played, the Parkhead club have won 23, drawn four and lost three, once again making themselves a force to be reckoned with.
Along with their impressive results, the Hoops have also shown how deadly they are in front of goal having found the net 65 times, also being very strong at the back with just 18 goals conceded.
Before the season kicked off, Celtic were incredibly busy in terms of bringing new players into the club and moving others out.
One summer recruit in particular who has gone on to prove a solid player for Postecoglou’s side and contribute to their impressive defensive record is Cameron Carter-Vickers, who is currently picking up £22k-per-week according to Salary Sport.
Having arrived on loan from Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur, the American has made 37 appearances for the Hoops across all competitions, chipping in with three goals and one assist in the process.
In the league, fellow defender Carl Starfelt is the only outfield player to rack up more minutes for Celtic than the 24-year-old, highlighting how important he has been for the team.
However, the Spurs loanee has made more clearances per game (4.4) in the league this season than his Swedish defensive partner and any other Celtic player, along with the joint-highest number of blocks per game (0.4) compared to any other Hoops player to have started at least one league match.
All in all, the loanee -who has been dubbed “outstanding” by Greg Taylor – has earned himself an overall performance rating of 7.34/10, making him the fourth-highest rated player currently in Postecoglou’s squad according to WhoScored.
If the American can keep delivering solid performances for the Hoops until the end of the season, he could well end his loan spell with a league title under his belt.
Looking beyond that, it would seem wise for the Parkhead club to try and sign the defender on a permanent deal from the north London club when the summer transfer window opens.
