Celtic: Cameron Carter-Vickers a ‘big miss’ vs RB Leipzig

Celtic: Cameron Carter-Vickers a ‘big miss’ vs RB Leipzig -Celtic News

Cameron Carter-Vickers being absent for Wednesday night’s Champions League game against RB Leipzig will be a ‘big miss’ for Celtic, according to journalist Dean Jones.

The Lowdown: Carter-Vickers ruled out of Leipzig clash

The Hoops take on the German giants under the European lights at the Red Bull Arena tonight, but will have to do so without one of their key players.

The 24-year-old was left out of Ange Postecoglou’s squad for the 2-0 defeat to St. Mirren in the Scottish Premiership before the international break, and he hasn’t featured since.

It’s now been confirmed that the centre-back won’t be involved in the action during midweek due to sustaining an injury in training last month.

The Latest: Celtic suffer injury ‘setback’

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones insisted that Celtic have already suffered a ‘setback’ simply by having to play without the services of Carter-Vickers.

“Carter-Vickers, particularly, will be a big miss in the Champions League. I’m sure they’d be worried about that. So, it sounds to me like his injury, obviously, is a setback.”

The Verdict: Blow for Postecoglou

Celtic not having Carter-Vickers available for selection will come as a huge blow to Postecoglou, who will know exactly how much of an integral member of the starting XI he is.

The defender currently averages four clearances per league game, alongside winning 3.7 of his aerial duels and having an outstanding 91.8% pass success rate (WhoScored), displaying dominance but also composure at the back.

Whilst the 6 foot 1 star won’t be able to make an impact tonight, the boss will be hoping to have his colossus back at his disposal again sooner rather than later.
