    The whipping bhoys this season, Forrest, Brown, Ajer and Taylor.

    Sometimes I wonder why the rest get away with poor performances!

    Yes, he made a huge mistake in the 1st half. He is miles better than Duffy though. Hope we keep him.

    Still dithers on the ball too much for me, no question he's a great talent.

    Thought he played better the longer the game went on, actually won a couple of important headers in our box today which was good. Two things he needs to cut out is when he has created space to play out from the back stop turning back in to where the attacking player is.

    Second his positioning when a team is attacking and we are set is too high it leaves an easy ball through or over and in behind him with space for an attacker to run out to in get him turned and chasing. This is what led to the penalty at Livi last weekend and he also got caught like that early in the game today. It’s particularly problematic when playing a back 3 as there is no full back. Taylor also covered across for him well a few times.

    If he could sort out particularly the second one above I think it would improve him as a defender enormously as he wouldn’t be given attackers a head start and easy opportunity to turn him.

    There was one moment in the game when he just never jumped for a ball in our box, I was fuming with him at the time, was like he was stuck to the floor. I was like "just jump and head the ball".

    His composure in the final minutes to play Elhamed in for Griffs goal was * superb, absolutely top class from him.

    One of few who can hold his head up high today.

    I had to double check because I thought it was Rogic the way he done it.

    Which is a major compliment.

    I never noticed that, but he was really good today. I'll go back and have a look at the goal now the highlights are out.

    Not a fan of his because his defending over the past year has been poor at best however, he played very well today continuing improved performances of late.

    He has hit a sweet run of form in the last month or so. Looking like the player he did when he first came in the team.

    Keep it up Kris

    Don’t think it’s a coincidence that he has a more experienced leader beside him is when it’s happened.

    Yes, he did play well yesterday-and have to say, he has been good recently, maybe feels more secure with Duffy beside him.

    AC Milan's interest in Kris Ajer is dead in the water after Celtic rejected an offer from the Italian giants.

    The Serie A outfit have been keeping a close eye on Ajer this summer and it is understood they did approach the Hoops with a bid for the Norwegian. However Herald and Times Sport understands the Glasgow club rejected the fee.

    Now Milan are understood to have moved on and will look to try and bring in Antonio Rudiger from Chelsea on a season-long loan deal.

    Ajer, 22, is believed to have been open to a move to Italy with Milan but will now focus on trying to help the Parkhead side complete their 10 in a row mission. Sources close to the player have also revealed there is no interest from down south despite recent reports linking him with the likes of West Brom and Leicester City.
    Paolo Maldini, sporting director at San Siro, recently confirmed Ajer was on a shortlist of players Milan were looking at.
