Celtic centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers says he is feeling good after undergoing surgery on a knee injury.
The American international delayed the operation until after the Scottish Cup semi-final win against Rangers but he will now be sidelined for the rest of the season. When asked for an update on his recovery, Carter-Vickers replied:
“The knee is as good as it can be, I got surgery last week. I’m just rehabbing from that and, it’s still early days, so it’s hard to put a timeline on it at the moment. But I’m positive about it and I’m sure I’ll be back as soon as possible.”
There were some rumours circulating that Carter-Vickers could potentially miss the start of next season. Manager Ange Postecoglou was quick to play down those claims and the player himself now seems to be hinting that he will be back in action sooner rather than later.
Of course, there can be complications after recovering from surgery but, from the looks of things, the defender should be back available at some point in pre-season.
With the Hoops having secured their place in the Champions League group stages, there will be no need to rush Carter-Vickers back early for any competitive games so everything seems to be pretty positive at the moment.
