One Celtic player will be walking a suspension tightrope in Leverkusen
Cameron Carter-Vickers has started every one of the 15 games played by Ange Postecoglou’s men since his season-long loan switch from Tottenham Hotspur on transfer deadline day. However, after being shown yellow cards in the defeats to Real Betis and Leverkusen earlier in Group F, another caution this week would rule him out of the potentially decisive section closer at home the the Seville side in little over a fortnight.
The US international is the solitary Celtic player one booking away from a ban with a clutch of others are on one caution – Anthony Ralston, Stephen Welsh, Carl Starfelt, Tom Rogic, Adam Montgomery and Ismaila Soro. Only if Postecoglou’s men avoid defeat in the BayArena is the fixture only likely to be live in terms of Celtic’s hopes of a berth in the Europa League knock-out stages.
