US media talk about former Celtic youth, Cameron Harper, expected to feature in other Red Bull teams


Did Celtic miss young Cameron Harper?

The American football (yes, football) media seem to think so. Harper, who didn’t seal a move to the New York Red Bulls for long, is already earning grateful nods from pundits.

Harper, who was brought to Celtic by Tommy Burns’ son, is expected to have a big impact for the Red Bulls. In a list of America’s best young talent, Harper ranked 7th [American Soccer Now]. In front of him were some fantastic names, including Anthony Fontana and Paxton Pomykal.

They say “fantastic names”. We don’t know them too well as players.

ASN suggested that Harper would seek to make himself known to the network of Red Bull clubs. This could mean a possible return to Europe for the winger. The likes of Tyler Adams and manager Jesse Marsch have enjoyed spells at either end of the Red Bulls club system.

The point of sale said [ASN]:

“Last month, Cameron Harper transferred from Celtic to the New York Red Bulls and the winger will look to bolster the club’s attack while immersing himself in the Red Bull world organization. [sic].

“Whenever US U-20 manager Anthony Hudson has given interviews in 2020, he’s always been quick to praise Harper as an important part of the squad – and other US U-20 players have often singled out Harper as well. . “

Overwhelming Celtic support in North America will keep us on Cameron Harper

Obviously, there is a big time difference between us and the east coast of the United States. So, avid European fans of Cameron Harper would do well to watch him play 90 minutes.

On a personal level, since joining the website, I have spoken to North American Celtic supporters who were passionate about Harper’s talents. We’re sure they’ll keep us in the right direction as the ex-Celtic youth continues his football journey to more familiar shores.

As for the implications of the Red Bull organization? There is certainly a precedent. Whether it is players from Brazil or New York to Leipzig, or even from Salzburg to Leipzig, the clubs are united and pool resources. If Harper is able to make a big impact in MLS, it would surely follow that European partners on the New York side will want to take a closer look.

While this is obviously speculative, Harper has received rave reviews for years. There was real excitement about his entry into Celtic’s first team plans, and that just didn’t happen in the end.

So it’s possible that one day Harper will line up with our opposition at a famous electric European night at Celtic Park. For now though, he’s focused on the success of MLS in New York City.

No pressure.
