NEW Bhoy Cameron Carter-Vickers has revealed the part Joe Hart played in his deadline-beating move to Celtic.

The 23-year-old Spurs centre-back made the eleventh hour switch from London to Glasgow after agreeing a season-long loan with Ange Postecoglou’s side.

However, the English-born US international defender admitted he didn’t have a clue about the move until he got a phone call at home to trigger the dramatic late-night rush to get the deal over the line before the midnight deadline on Tuesday.

And Hart, his former team-mate at the London side, told him not to hesitate in making the switch to Parkhead.

The eight times-capped back-four operator said: “It all happened fairly quickly.

“I was just sitting at home relaxing and not knowing what was going to happen. Then I got the call and had to rush to Tottenham’s training ground to get it all signed off.

“As soon as I heard it was Celtic, it was something I wanted to do. It’s a massive club with a massive fanbase and obviously European football as well.

“I spoke to Joe Hart before I came up here and he said the atmosphere is unbelievable, he said it’s one of the best atmospheres he’s ever known, so I’m definitely looking forward to it.

“I’m excited and happy to be here. I trained this morning with a few of the boys, I know a lot of the boys are still away on international duty, but I’m looking forward to it.”

Cameron was clear about his ambitions with the club. Speaking to Celtic TV, he added: “Just to win. I’ve come here and I know the expectation at Celtic is to win every game.

“That’s why I’m here, to try to help the team do that.”
