Cameron Harper explains his 'one goal' at Celtic
Celtic youngster Cameron Harper has been discussing his ‘one goal’ at the club. The youngster has been talking to American Soccer Now ahead of a USA under-20 training camp in Slovenia.
“My main priority is to get into the reserve team, become more comfortable playing up an age group. The players get better, everyone is faster, they’re stronger, they’re smarter.
“But you always have to have one goal that is something that you really need to strive for. You don’t know if it’s going to happen but it’s something that could happen. That is my first-team debut. If I can kick on throughout the next few months and get a first-team debut, that’s the one target.”
The talented teenager is taking the step up by joining with Tab Ramos’ squad and is also doing the same at Celtic.
He has stepped into the reserve team at Celtic and is hoping to push on and become a first-team player as soon as possible.
Harper has certainly impressed in the Celtic youth-team in recent times. He scored in the club’s Youth Cup final defeat to Rangers last season and is a player who Celtic have high hopes for.
As for playing first-team football for the club, Harper might have to wait a little while longer.
Celtic have the likes of James Forrest, Mikey Johnston, Scott Sinclair and Mohamed Elyounoussi at their disposal this season. When you also consider the likes of Jonny Hayes, Lewis Morgan, Marian Shved, Daniel Arzani and Karamoko Dembele play in his position, Harper looks to have no chance of a first-team debut in 2019-20.
But it is fantastic to see Harper’s ambition and Celtic fans should certainly keep him on their radar going forward.
