The Record tonight has posted a gleeful, spiteful article negatively attacking Cameron Carter Vickers, in which it bizarrely suggests that Ibrox’s virtual unknown James Sands is seen as a better option for the United States.
They got this story from the MLS website; I can call it a hatchet-job quite easily because that’s what it is.
The MLS article is so clearly written by someone who has no idea what he’s talking about it that I would be embarrassed to have such low-rent commentary on this site.
That The Record has used it as the basis of an attack on our player reeks of malice and desperation.
“Cameron Carter Vickers Celtic hype forgotten in brutal US media verdict as Rangers loanee named World Cup alternative” screams their deplorable headline.
Having read the piece, I cannot believe that the American writer has ever actually watched Scottish football.
“Carter-Vickers does a lot of good stuff when the ball’s on the ground, but he’s not Long’s equal in the air, and that matters … Carter-Vickers has never really shown the ability to muscle a centre forward and win a long clearance … and has struggled to do it for his club at higher levels. His weakness in the air is the reason he plays in Scotland rather than England, full stop.”
Carter Vickers isn’t good in the air? What is this shit?
And it gets worse.
“One thing I will say is that if there needs to be a fifth centre back – and there should be if rosters are expanded to 26 – it should be James Sands because of his versatility. He’d slot into the depth chart as a fifth centre back as well as a third mid and a third right back.”
So Cameron Carter Vickers shouldn’t be considered for the squad although everyone in Scotland agrees he was absolutely outstanding? Whilst Sands can play three positions all in one!
People who actually have watched these two play – more than this joker appears to have done – know who the success story was.
And maybe the writer of that piece doesn’t know – but Mark Pirie of The Record, who has made it the centrepiece of his own bullshit certainly does – that if Celtic hadn’t exercised their option to buy that a host of English clubs were ready to.
Hell, Pirie should know that … he wrote about it often enough.
Would you even have remembered there was such a player as James Sands if not for this?
The writer of that piece is a first-rate idiot, but his lamentable piece.
Rather than point that out, it gave Pirie, instead, his cue to do a sneering attack article on one of the players who was simply outstanding here in the last campaign.
That is The Record at its desperate, disreputable worst.

Hopefully the coach will agree and send him back to us unscathed – who cares? More games equals more risk. Ask Starfelt
CCV is as good a CH as we have had in a good number of years.
The fact the current yank’s coach does not think so is his problem! He will have seen more of the US based players he has had at his disposal and would be likely to stick with them until CCV takes his opportunity which I am sure he will.
I’d rather the big guy got a few week’s rest anyway.
The Daily Retard is a biased, Sevco klan appeasing rag which is completely infested with nothing but supporters with leanings towards that club.
There will never ever be any good news stories relating to us, they will always be hatchet jobs on Celtic players as opposed to CV’s being printed for theirs.
Personally I find it amusing that these so called journalists spend their time surfing for any snippet that they can use to titillate their readers rather than actually attempting actual journalism.
Its time to understand that and stop giving their gobs hite pieces oxygen.
Its a despicable rag that should be treated with the contempt it deserves.
These people at that rag ain’t journalists , they’re just click bait merchants
Put Celtic in a headline along with the word ‘ Brutal ‘ flop ‘ nightmare ‘ etc and they know the orcs will flock to it
It’s a nonsense website sorta like an online version of that old Bizarre section that was in The Scum but instead of showbiz and music it’s to do with football
Just like their phoney phone in where their main hun hacks man the phone line and everyday the headline is having a pop at Celtic
“That The Record has used it as the basis of an attack on our player reeks of malice and desperation.”
When it comes to the glorious, malice and desperation is all they ever have.
In the US there aren’t too many experienced folk working in all levels of the game including media. It wouldn’t surprise me that the MLS website article wasn’t written by some rando hun ex-pat being a dick, as is their wont.
Why is a Scottish news medium undermining the Scottish League ? Or is it more precise than that ?
That US journalists weak attempt at trying to sound knowledgeable about football was pure comedy!
“has never really shown the ability to muscle a centre forward and win a long clearance”
…and then this belter:
“He’d slot into the depth chart as a fifth centre back as well as a third mid and a third right back.”
(Insert laughing hysterically emoji)
…i doubt the guy has ever played football, at least not the normal ‘soccer’ version, and his wacky effort at trying to ‘talk football’ is an epic fail!
I know football/soccer is far from the number 1 sport in the good old U.S. of A, but had no idea they were(at least in this instance) that out of touch!
The writer is probably used to covering other American sports, and trying to attribute his knowledge of them to football, but it doesn’t wash, not with people who actually know the sport!
The sad thing is, other Americans are no doubt reading his ramblings and forming false opinions of a fantastic player through them!
I’ll trust CCV to do his talking on the pitch!
Mark Pirie is the new Gary Ralston.
The big fella wears a championship winners medal around his neck. Enough said.
A comic of a paper.No Celtic fan should read it,on the Net or buy it.
Sands who? another wonder boy.he’s as good as Ramsey who Juventus can’t get rid of.
Ban the comic Celtic,enough is Enough.
