    I dont think he's ever gonnae make it here. But I can see him being one of those strikers that moves on and starts being prolific somewhere else. Like Pukki

    Weird player, I think under the right set-up he could become good, but it's best for all parties he moves on.

    Strange player in modern times, I thought European forwards always had more to their game but this guy is a throwback to typical Scottish poachers, we dont play with a poacher nowadays though, if the game swings back towards 2 strikers u think he'll likely thrive

    Ange was filmed at the start of his time at Celtic taking a training session where he was seen shouting 'we never stop, we keep going, we can rest when its full time'....It was definitely a case of 'Taxi for Ajeti' at that point.

    Yet another awful piece of scouting by the Celtic scouting team, their track record of signing quality strikers is absolutely awful and has cost us millions upon millions. No surprises that Kyogo was Ange's signing, I would doubt the scouts at Celtic were even aware of his existence.

    Ajeti’s worked his * off under Ange, he looks much fitter, he puts a lot of effort in when he plays, it’s not laziness that’s not made him a success here. He doesn’t suit what we want to do, the effort he’s put in this season to try and adapt I’ll be happy enough with that. Came in this season and scored a few and picked up the slack, he’s just not what we need or good enough. That’s not down to him, he’s done all he can. That’s down to us and our scouting.

    We chose him over Ivan Toney. That’s down to us. I hope he’s a success wherever he goes because he isn’t a bad striker, he’s just not a good one for us.

    I liked him until the Dundee United game when he went hiding he marked the United CB's out the game.

    He is a reason we should tread very, very carefully if we go dipping into the grotesquely overpriced market in England that has Oli McBurnie valued at £20 million.

    Feel like West Ham scammed us tbh.

    They thought he was a dud but when they received a bid from us and another club for 5 mill, they were thinking of only doing a loan incase he came good..

    Actually seen a couple of West Ham fans throw in their two cents about him on Twitter saying something similar before he signed but thought they were just trolling as he looked alright on Youtube.

    They'll be glad we took him off their books. Waste of cash that was!

    Can't stand him..

    Every first touch bobbles away from him and he's useless....* useless..

    Don't ever want to see him in a Celtic jersey again..

    I can't see what you are seeing, I'm sorry to say. Ajeti, was sitting on the bench all game, chose not to burst the gut. When he came on. He was so static. Watching the ball being passed about him. Didn't even attempt to close people down when off the ball.

    He was walking. Kyogo has set the benchmark, in terms of his work rate in what we need from a striker. It was so frustrating as you could sense what was coming.

    For me, that's the last time I want to see him in a Celtic Jersey. I hope reads this and reflects and pulls up his socks. Contributed to the pressure building on the defence. He offered no out ball for the team, worse of all, didn't pressurise them when off the ball. Giorgos Giakoumakis, if we need someone to hold up the ball then he can come on. 29 goals or, the like in Holland deserves a chance. Ajeti has had well over a year now to establish himself. He's not got it.

    He'll be lucky to get a move back to Switzerland. I'm so disappointed.

    In all honesty I feel sorry for him. Wish he was better. Not convinced by his commitment but plenty have shown less.

    Biggest doubt about him is supposedly he made himself deliberately unavailable a few times last season. No idea why, but Lennon was the manager so who knows!!!

    Regardless think we should sell him earliest opportunity.

    I think he maybe is a decent finisher but is way too slow to get into the position to do that. Sometimes a striker can combat lack of pace by having a good instinct to get into the positions to score, don’t think he has that either.

    I would absolutely agree with everything you said there. It is on us that it hasn't worked out not on him as he has put the effort in. He just is not a good fit in particular for the way Ange wants us to play. But in fairness to him unlike others last season he has not thrown a huff and chucked it in when he has played or come off the bench. Even recently when he has come on for only a few minutes he has worked hard. Best if we can find another striker and he can move on in January for both him and us. But for me I wish him the best and hope it works out for him at his next club.
