Kris Boyd had hammered Celtic player Albian Ajeti on the Sky Sports’ Scottish Football podcast for his performance in the 4-0 win over St. Mirren on Wednesday night – with the Swiss striker continuing to struggle at Parkhead.
Ajeti, 23, joined Celtic for £4.5million (BBC) last summer from West Ham after the Switzerland international struggled to make an impact in East London last season – following his move to the Hammers from his home country.
The Hoops cruised to a 4-0 win thanks to an early strike from Tom Rogic, before late goals scored by Odsonne Edouard, David Turnbull and Ryan Christie saw Celtic leave Paisley with a flattering scoreline. Ajeti last 68 minutes before being dragged.
Despite his hefty transfer fee, Ajeti has managed just six goals in 26 league and cup appearances for the Bhoys. Ex-Rangers man Boyd criticised the striker, labelling him as “miles off it” for his performance during the midweek win.
