He’ll have every chance to get that at Celtic, who has a new manager and some experience with a USMNT loan star in Timothy Weah during the striker’s PSG days.

“I am absolutely delighted to agree this move to Celtic, it is a really exciting opportunity for me and I am desperate to meet my new team-mates and get going for the season ahead. I know I am going to a huge club which means so much to so many people and I will be doing all I can to bring our fans the success which their support deserves.”

Carter-Vickers was well-liked during loans to Bournemouth, Luton Town, and Swansea City. He boosted the Cherries in a promotion playoff push and helped Luton avoid the drop, and now gets a chance to fight for a title.

What is Carter-Vickers walking into?

Celtic’s turnover has been massive after Neil Lennon’s side failed to claim a 10th-straight Scottish title last season, seeing Steven Gerrard and Rangers take the crown.

New boss Ange Postecoglou has seen Kristoffer Ajer and Odsonne Edouard leave for the Premier League and Ryan Christie to the Championship.

In are Carter-Vickers, exciting Kyogo Furuhashi and Liel Abada, and defenders Carl Starfelt and Josip Juranovic.

Things are tense at Celtic Park, where the board was viewed as a villain for not keeping up with Rangers. In that sense, Carter-Vickers could find himself a new home and the chance to get the regular time that gives Gregg Berhalter the impetus to play him for the United States men’s national team.
