Fan journalist Craig Finn has expressed his thoughts on Celtic centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers’ recent call-up to his national team.
Dubbed ‘immense’ by former Celtic centre-forward Chris Sutton, Carter-Vickers has played a huge role in the Hoops quest to regain the Scottish Premiership title.
During his loan spell in Glasgow this year only goalkeeper Joe Hart, captain Callum McGregor and centre-back partner Carl Starfelt have played more minutes than the Tottenham Hotspur-owned player.
And he is set to be recalled to the American team for their busy schedule next month which will see them play four times – two friendlies against Morocco and Uruguay and two Concacaf Nations League games.
As detailed by The Washington Post, USA manager Gregg Berhalter plans to invite two players who weren’t part of the qualifying effort: forward Haji Wright and centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers.
The Southend-born star seems destined to receive his first national call-up since 2019 as a reward for his fine form for the Hoops and was credited by Finn on Twitter on Thursday morning.
He tweeted: “Cameron Carter-Vickers set to be called up to the USA squad for an international camp in June. Well deserved and proof he can reach his international ambitions at Celtic.”

Should Celtic break their club record to buy CCV?
The club have conceded just 20 goals in the 35 league games this term so it is no wonder journalist Pete O’Rourke reported manager Ange Postecoglou is hoping to hold onto the American on a permanent deal.
However, having provided the eight-capped international with a platform to play for his country again and with the potential of reaching the Champions League by clinching the Scottish title, the Parkhead club could hold all the cards when it comes to his final decision.
