The permanent acquisition of Carter-Vickers will be a real fillip for Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou, who wanted to keep the American after striking up a solid centre-half pairing with Carl Starfelt.

“I am absolutely delighted that the club has completed the signing of Cameron on a permanent basis,” said Postecoglou.
