    Peter Grant was a decent player.

    Are you suggesting that if Neil Lennon played now he wouldn't be any good?

    If so, I think you couldn't be more wrong.

    Ajer played as a midfielder in Norway before we bought him. At least some of the time. I'm not claiming to know the game better than Brendan Rodgers but even professional managers get things wrong or don't see things from time to time. And let's face it, spotting a good defender is hardly one of the things Brendan Rodgers is good at. Playing a midfielder at centre back because he's decent with the ball at his feet is exactly the sort of thing Brendan Rodgers would do. And did.

    Don't think he'd be anywhere near good enough in midfield. He turns like a bus, quite a clumsy sort of player and I doubt he'd be much good in tight spaces.

    There's a reason why there's not many 6'6 midfielders, or full backs, or wingers. They're all areas of the pitch where you need to be sharp, fairly agile, have good mobility and be good with the ball in tight spaces.

    He would get passed by too easily.

    Was he not about 10?? Not just Rodgers have played him at the back as you know.
    Lennon would struggle with the pace of the game however his reading of the game would help him, another trait Ajer doesn’t have is being able to read the game. He’d be on his * more than his feet in the midfield. If he played for Sevco and one day he turned up against us in midfield we’d be * ourselves, eagerly awaiting him getting the complete run around.

    As I’ve been saying, nowhere near mobile enough.

    It is understood Southampton are considering £20m move for Kristoffer Ajer while Celts are keeping tabs on Preston defender Ben Davies and staying in the race to land Brighton’s Shane Duffy.

    Lennon denied the agents of Kristoffer Ajer and Olivier Ntcham have asked for valuations ahead of potential moves.

    Both are understood to be open to quitting Celtic in the current transfer window.

    But Lenny urged all in-demand players to ignore any interest and focus on the job.

    He said: “There is nothing I can do about that. Again, there’s going to be a lot of speculation surrounding players.

    "But we’ve made it clear that we want them to stay

    SOUTHAMPTON have joined the transfer hunt for Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer, according to reports.

    The Express claim today that the giant Norwegian has decided to leave Parkhead this summer and the South Coast side are the latest to emerge as a potential destination.

    We told you last month how Italian giants AC Milan had held talks with Ajer's agent after placing the defender on their wishlist


    But Lennon later insisted there was nothing in their interest as he shut down any chance of a move for the Norwegian international.


    West Ham and Premier League new boys West Bromwich Albion are also credited with an interest in the 6ft 6in stopper who can also play at right back or central midfield.


    Celtic have been strongly linked with a move for Brighton star Shane Duffy.

    Reports this week claimed that Ajer was one of the players whose representatives had asked for a valuation ahead of a potential move from the club.

    The likes of Victor Wanyama, Virgil van Dijk and Fraser Forster have made the same journey in the past - with last season's Hoops goalkeeping hero still on the payroll

    I can only remember him having a good 5 minutes at the end of a game against Der Hun. He does look okay stepping out of defence into midfield with the ball but his defending gives me Ambrose level fear. £20 million? Bite the hand off them.

    I’ll forgive big Fraser Forster if he’s went down there and managed to convince Southampton that Ajer is worth spending £20m on :fear:

    Vital wen we are hitting a brick wall , the damage moving from defence to attack against that system is 1 we will miss badly , the problem we had Wednesday was no 1 could put the ball in the net after our equaliser , but u can see how effective he was doing that , bit to learn defensively but defo another quality player who will reach the top ,I have no doupt .

    We need two new CB's this summer before anything else happens.

    IF Ajer is for the off, we NEED 3 more CBs
