Sir Kenny Dalglish has praised the professionalism of Cameron Carter-Vickers, having previously watched him in action for Tottenham Hotspur.

The Liverpool and Celtic legend revealed that he was in attendance during a reserve team game between the Anfield outfit and Tottenham and was left impressed by the attitude of the central defender, who a day earlier had been an unused substiute at Anfield for a first-team fixure between the two sides.

Carter-Vickers completed a deadline day loan switch to Celtic which includes the option for the Scottish side to make the move permanent.

The 23-year-old academy product had found first team opportunities hard to come by in North London and found himself behind the likes of Cristian Romero, Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier and Japhet Tanganga in the central defensive pecking order.

Dalglish told the The Sunday Post (print edition, page 75, September 5, 2021): “I watched Carter-Vickers in action for Tottenham’s reserves in a game against Liverpool and he looked an excellent professional. His attitude was spot-on.

“The day before, he had been an unused sub for the first team, but still travelled to Merseyside in an exemplary frame of mind.”

Carter-Vickers now has a great opportunity to put down some roots in his career after countless loan spells in the Championship.

At Celtic, he has the opportunity to play in front of a large crowd and taste European football on a regular basis, rather than drop down a division in the English pyramid once again.
