A number of Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Kristoffer Ajer’s performance as the Hoops beat Aberdeen in John Kennedy’s first game in charge.
The Hoops got back to winning ways with Odsonne Edouard scoring the decisive goal after eight minutes at Parkhead.
It was hardly the most inspiring performance from Celtic. But some players did manage to produce an impressive display in the victory.
And Ajer was certainly one of those who received a lot of plaudits on social media. His partnership with Stephen Welsh appears to be developing nicely.
As shown by Whoscored, the Norwegian made nine clearances during the game – two more than any other player on the pitch. He also made three interceptions and won five aerial duels.
It was a colossal performance from the 22-year-old. But for many, it was a reminder of the battle the Bhoys will face in the summer.
Ajer is one of the brightest talents in the current Celtic squad. And several fans are clearly anticipating that they are going to do incredibly well to keep him for another year.
‘Has to be at the club next season’
Some have implored the club to make Ajer the captain at some stage. Others have insisted that Celtic need to make him an offer he simply cannot refuse.
With that in mind, here is how some of the Celtic fans have reacted to Ajer’s latest display…
Biggest move celtic could make this summer is getting ajer tied down to a new long term deal

Everything possible should be done to keep Kris Ajer at Celtic

I’d make Ajer the new Captain from next season. He drives from the back, he pulls his defence into correct areas, hes in the best position as Captain.
