Cameron Carter-Vickers has signed a new long-term contract with Celtic and says he looks forward to achieving more success with the Glasgow club.

The USA international signed for Celtic in 2022 after a successful loan spell, signing a four-year deal.

He’s now agreed an extension to the summer of 2029 and said he couldn’t be happier with the Premiership champions.

“I am really delighted to sign this new contract with Celtic,” Carter-Vickers told the club website. “I have loved everything about the club from day one and I am so pleased to have been part of some real successful times across the last few years.

“You always play the game to win, and being part of some great winning moments with Celtic has been really big for me, a real honour.

“I have had a great welcome and support from the Celtic fans ever since I came here.

“We all know the love and passion our fans have for the club, there is nothing better than playing at a packed Celtic Park and I am delighted to be playing my football here.

“I have really enjoyed working with the manager, the staff and great teammates and we will all be doing everything we can to bring our fans more and more success over the next few years.”

Carter-Vickers has won two league titles, two League Cups and a Scottish Cup since moving to Glasgow and manager Brendan Rodgers said that his presence in the team was a key part of the team’s success.

“This is great news for us all that Cameron has extended his contract with the club,” Rodgers said.

“He has been an absolute rock for us since he joined the club and has played to such a high standard so regularly, week in, week out.

“He has been such a pillar of strength in our defence and a real leader in the team – I know he is held in such high regard, too, by his teammates.

“His qualities as a player, his personality and his absolute commitment to the game make him a real joy to work with.

“I know Cam loves the club and the city and really has made Celtic his home and we are delighted to have him here with us.

“There has been a lot of talk about the interest in him from elsewhere, but all he has done is get on with his football, decide where he wants to be and we are delighted that he sees his future at Celtic.”
