    I don't know whether it's more heartwarming that Ajer went the extra mile to get the boy his shirt or more depressing that some stewards feel the need to behave like that.

    I've been calling for him to be played there all season :56:

    When we've had centre mids out..

    I wouldn't be against seeing it still, but he's shown the last 2 game's a real different side to him....and I believe he'll be a class, monstrous centre half from now on..

    In the challenge you can now see player's fearful of him coming in and cleaning them out. Love to see that in a centre half..

    Day he gets a full beard is the day I go to hospital to get blood taken out my baby rocket as my hard on won't have gone away for 4 weeks.

    1 in 2 goal scoring record for Start shows how easy he found it even as a young teen. We need him tied up on a long bumper deal pronto. He's one of the best talent's at the club.

    Played a lot as an attacking midfielder and striker as well. I’m sure as soon as he gets a couple under his belt he’ll start banging them in, he’s got a good instinct for positions to get into just seems to * it up in those positions. Some absolute sitters he’s had.

    I think it’s inevitable he’ll want to move on eventually but I’d give him a 5 year deal with a massive release clause like £35m.

    Don’t even negotiate with clubs interested in him. If they want him they can pay the release clause.

    Aye he can definitely go to the top, without question..

    He seems happy and humble though. Can see him here for at least another couple of year's anyway..

    If he keeps progressing the way he has of late, then the sky's the limit..

    Get's a good, strong, dominant partner in and we're sorted there..

    In the summer I’d be looking for a partner for him. Then another young CB who’ll step up when he goes.

    Basically the next Ajer :giggle1:

    I saw reports linking us with a young CB called Edson Alvarez, would be a perfect partner. Similar to Ajer in that he can also play in midfield.

    What we done with Ajer was pretty smart. A young midfield who was an absolute specimen and moulding him into a CB.

    Everything except the finish was sublime last night. Late run into the box, taking it on the half turn, first touch... Perfect.

    Finish...

    I didn't like it at the time and it's taken me ages to fully trust Ajer at the back..

    Valencia away with 10 up against Guedes was the turning point..

    His aggression and progress the last 2 game's have been immense..

    Yep..

    Seen it on KDS :fear:

    KRIS Ajer said last night that he is ready to put his head in where it hurts again in what promises to be a bruising battle against Aberdeen on Sunday for a William Hill Scottish Cup final place. The 20-year-old Norwegian, who earned new respect from the Parkhead supporters in the last week or so for a series of match-winning tackles in the Old Firm derby against Rangers, was on the wrong end of a Duckens Nazon elbow in midweek and was playing on Saturday with stitches freshly removed from a recent facial injury. With Sam Cosgrove likely to lead the line for Aberdeen on Sunday, Celtic’s Viking warrior can be sure of another aerial battering but the converted midfielder insists he is prepared to put his body on the line again.


    As a centre half you have to get used to that kind of stuff,” said Ajer. “When you go up to win these duels you know something can happen. But you always have to go in 100 per cent or you shouldn’t be playing. That will never be a concern for me.

    “He [Cosgrove] has done really well this season,” Ajer added. “We know Aberdeen are in great form right now and they will make it really difficult. It will be a battle and we have to win the physical battle before you earn the right to play. My stitches had been in for a week but the doctors did a fantastic job. I’ve had enough head knocks this season so hopefully there’s no more to come.”

    With Dedryck Boyata likely to have played his last game for the club and Filip Benkovic set to return to parent club Leicester this summer, Ajer’s continued emergence is timely considering Celtic are likely to have Champions League qualifiers this July. He said he had watched the clips of his crucial tackles against Rangers’ Joe Worrall and James Tavernier back. “I don’t score that many goals so I have to celebrate the stuff that I can,” said Ajer. “It was a great feeling to have that tackle and my reaction was to celebrate it. When you hear the fans celebrating your tackle like that, and you know how much it means to everyone, the adrenaline starts pumping and you just want to celebrate. It was a good feeling. I’ve watched it back a few times. I always get clips sent to me after every game.”

    All our central defenders should be big, sexy and Scandinavian. I want him beside the new Mjallby. :sweden:
