Cameron Carter-Vickers’ Celtic absence explained as Ange Postecoglou provides injury update on defender… – The Scottish Sun

  • September 19, 2022

CAMERON CARTER-VICKERS wasn't selected in the squad to face St Mirren today in the Scottish Premiership.
Ange Postecoglou gave an update on the defender before the match as he revealed that he suffered an injury against Shakhtar Donetsk midweek which saw him ruled out this afternoon.
It was a surprise for Hoops fans to see their ever present rock at the back missing from the teamsheet.
It's a huge blow for the Parkhead club but Stephen Welsh came on in his place.
It left Postecoglou with Alexandro Bernabei as his only defender on the bench though, with Carl Starfelt still nursing his injury as well.
With the international break coming up, it means they won't have a game for two weeks before taking on Motherwell on Saturday, October 1.
And the Celtic boss will hope he can make his return to the side before then.
Postecoglou started Anthony Ralston as well as he revealed that Josip Juranovic needed a rest.
Before the match, he told Sky Sports: "In midweek a couple of the boys pulled up but we’ve got quality players who are ready to go.
"Cameron pulled up so he wasn’t available and Jura (Juranovic) has played a lot of football so it made sense to give him a break. "
Meanwhile, Celtic fans continued to mock the death of the Queen before today's match as they disrupted the minute's applause.
SunSport revealed yesterday that the Saints were going to hold a minute's applause instead of a silence.
And the Hoops support made their feelings regarding the monarchy heard as they chanted "If you hate the Royal Family clap your hands" during the applause and when the match kicked off.
A banner telling other supporters to join in was seen in the Celtic crowd as well.
The incident sparked an apology from Sky as commentator Ian Crocker said: "Apologies if you were offended by anything you might have heard. Most showed respect, some did not."
