Cameron Carter-Vickers set his sights on the Champions League last night after completing a £6m move to Celtic.

The United States international has signed a four-year contract with Ange Postecoglou’s side after a successful loan spell last season.

Carter-Vickers was a key member of Australia’s Hoops side as they reclaimed the title from rival Rangers.

And the 24-year-old is eager to go up against Europe’s top sides now that his long-term future is resolved.

Carter-Vickers, also targeted by clubs in England, said: “I’m so happy to complete my move to Celtic and I really couldn’t be happier.

“I have loved every minute of my time at Celtic so far and really wanted to be part of the future of the club.

“We have a fantastic group of players at the club, we have a very good spirit and atmosphere amongst us and we all worked so hard together to achieve league and League Cup success last season.

“I wanted to make sure I was part of this group in the future and working under a great manager, and now we all want to do more.

“We have so much to look forward to, we will aim to be strong domestically again and of course we are looking forward to the Champions League with real enthusiasm.”
