Celtic have signed defender Cameron Carter-Vickers from Tottenham on a four-year deal.

The USA international spent last season on loan in Glasgow and played a key role in helping Ange Postecoglou's side win the Scottish Premiership title and League Cup.

Carter-Vickers, 24, made a total of 45 appearances for Celtic, scoring four goals including one on his debut against Ross County and a key winner against Rangers at Ibrox.

"I am so pleased to complete my move to Celtic and I really could not be happier," he said.

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

Ange Postecoglou admits his first season at Celtic was the hardest he has ever faced but insists his team will be even better next year

A year ago Celtic looked to the relatively unknown Ange Postecoglou to revitalise a club in turmoil and he silenced doubters by winning the Scottish Premiership title and League Cup during his debut season.

Postecoglou's start to life at Parkhead did not begin brightly, failing to win his first three matches which resulted in a Champions League exit and an opening-day defeat to Hearts in the league.

However, the Australian always insisted he would not waiver from his footballing philosophy of attacking, entertaining and relentless football, and piece by piece he rebuilt a struggling side who were blown aside by Rangers the previous season.

The title win came at Tannadice on a Wednesday night in May, with the manager promising this was only the beginning for him and his emerging talent at Celtic.
