    Matt O'Riley has revealed a savage prank from Cameron Carter-Vickers on Stephen Welsh.

    The Celtic star labelled his team-mate a loose cannon and admits when it comes to the dressing room pranks, something in his brain just clicks and a real sense of joy takes over. The USA international on one particular occasion showed his dedication to mischief as O'Riley delivered a blow by blow account of what had happened - despite admitting he wasn't sure if he was allowed to say


    Asked what was the funniest prank in not just the Celtic locker room but any he has been around, he told Celtic TV: "It wasn't to me but Cameron Carter-Vickers is a loose cannon. I don't know if everybody knows this, but he is. When it comes to pranks something clicks in his brain and he's got a real joy about doing it. I think it is between him and Welshy [Stephen Welsh]

    I'm not even sure I am allowed to say this, but I am going to say it anyway. He ended up clamping Welshy's car tyre, driving all the way back home and Welshy went out to his car and saw what happened. Didn't really know what to do and ended up having to drive all the way to Cam's apartment via an Uber. Cam then gave him the keys and then had to go back. It just shows the dedication he puts in to actually seeing a prank through. It is not my story to tell but you know, I've told it..

    I know he scored and assisted Bernardo but overall, was poor, especially first half.

    He was below par today with his passing and yet scored and assisted..

    He can't and won't be dropped next week though. He's crucial defensively against these the way he shuts down spaces and penetrates the gaps they leave playing a higher line..

    Has been watching too much of John Mcginn.

    1st instinct when he gets the ball is to turn his back to goal and shove his * into people.

    Fair dos he gets an assist from it today but that was mainly due to Bernardo.

    Also fed up looking at his miserable face even last couple of goals he's scored he's barely cracked a smile. See if u don't want to be here or u think ur too good to be here then * off.

    Couldn't lace the boots of the boy playing next to him

    Check out his celebration of Bernardos goal, tell me that's someon who doesn't want to be here. He celebrates others goals more than his own, maybe its because isn't full of ego and self indulgent?

    Watch the Celtic unique angle for the first as well..

    I'm all for picking things out but it was easy street when he got his goal and given he's his harshest critic, he was probably half embarrassed his pishy effort went in as it was nowhere near the corner..

    I usually like @Ryanm1984 posts but he's had a nightmare with this one look at the first 2 goals he's basically the orchestrator for the crowd :56:

    I get where he is coming from as he does have a Kevin and Perry demeanor about him at times stroppy teenager but he always celebrates others goals

    Definitely does give off * off vibes if you'd just switched the game on. You can see when he misses chances he's visibly very self critical/moody face and arms shrugging....I've mentioned things like this before....but clearly just his nature. If it was because you were dying to be away then there's no way you'd celebrate your teammates goals more than your own though..

    Wasn't at his best but still played a part in goals.

    Still needs to step it up for this game imo. Could see last week he tried force things a lot and wasn’t working for him. When he plays it simple everything flows and he grows into the game much better like how it went later on in the game. Needs to work hard from the off n just keep it simple Sunday which I reckon he will

    He turns up in these games vs them, honestly can anyone think of a player that’s set up as many goals against them than he has? Certainly not in the same amount of games than he has. He always seems to get one or two assists against them, even Kyogo’s volley at Ibrox it was his header putting him through

    His attitude anytime I hear him is exceptional man, he’s straightforward to the point and really honest, and doesn’t shy away from any flaws he might have shown, and does something about it. Goalscoring from last year to this year, he said after scoring first game of the season that’s what he was making sure to do better in and he has. He can go right to the top, honestly hope when he does go it’s the right move, because Simeone would have been a brilliant manager for him
