    STEPHEN McManus expressed surprise last night about Kris Ajer’s omission from the PFA Scotland young player of the year award nominations list and suggested it could be because everyone forgets how young he is, writes Stewart Fisher. The 6ft 5in Norwegian, who turned 21 just a fortnight ago, has played 44 matches for the reigning Premiership champions this season, and with Filip Benkovic and Dedryck Boyata likely to move on this summer, seems certain to a mainstay in that position going forward.


    Brought to the club as a midfielder under Ronny Deila, Ajer earned the kudos of the fans for some crucial saving tackles in the vital 2-1 Old Firm win in March. “Kristoffer has been terrific and the modern-day defender,” said McManus, speaking at a McDonald’s Fun Football Centre in Renfrew. “He is one of those guys at our club when you forget how young they are.

    “He steps into the game well, picks passes and he is becoming the dominant one in both boxes,” added McManus. “He had to earn his stripes on loan at Kilmarnock and I think that helped him. I believe the quicker you expose young players to first team football the better. If that is at Celtic, or on loan, we need to expose them to senior football as soon as we can.”

    NL on Kristoffer Ajer: "I was a little surprised he wasn't nominated because he's had a brilliant season. He's really made that position his own.

    Joke he wasn't nominated. Clearly the deserved winner. Well done Kris.

    The fact he was not even nominated is embarrassing really. He has made a massive contribution to the season and been a big part of the ensuring we have the best defensive record in the league. The only discussion we should be having is does he deserve to win the award outright not talking about him not even been nominated.

    * horrendous how he is not even on the * list. Only in Scotland this sort of shambles would happen.

    First choice centre half next season. All about getting him a partner, be it a rejuvenated Jozo or someone else.

    Thought he was poor, yesterday.Simunovic has been much better of the two, recently . Wouldn't mind if Lenny plays Benkovic and Simunovic, for the Cup final game.

    Bit ropey at time's and don't know if he was told no to come out with the ball as he didn't do it much at all..

    Blocked an almost certain Berra goal second half but was * for their goal. Missed the ball completely..
