The news that Cameron Carter-Vickers was set to miss the rest of this season was met with a lukewarm reception by the Celtic support.
The fact that the league was already tied up and the place in the Scottish Cup final was booked meant that the US International could take some well needed R&R to let his injury heal up.
But a report from SBI Soccer claims that Carter-Vickers could be out for up to FOUR months after the op.
The report claims, “Carter-Vickers is set to miss 3-4 months following knee surgery, a source close to the player confirmed to SBI. Carter-Vickers had been fighting through a knee injury during the second half of the season and was expected to head for surgery following Sunday’s Scottish Cup semifinal match, a source confirmed.”

This will come as a devastating blow to Ange Postecoglou who would have hoped to have had him back and fir in time for the Champions League next season.
