The “unique angle” footage Celtic post after big wins may have lost a lot of its appeal in recent months.
The lack of a roar inside Celtic Park when a big goal goes in is noticeable, and takes most of the enjoyment out of the behind-the-scenes Hoops clips.
But they still have a value now and again – as was shown during last night’s win over Riga FC.

While the TV cameras were focussed on the net that Mohamed Elyounoussi had just slammed a 90th minute winner into, the Celtic camera picked up some brilliant Kristoffer Ajer footage.
And the previously unseen moment was one that many of the Hoops faithful picked up on.
Ajers celebration shows you exactly what it means to him thats not a guy downing tools that’s for sure. https://t.co/hhbMJ4Sj9n

Look at Ajer’s reaction to the goal, drops to his knees in sheer delight/relief, it obviously means a lot to him, yet Peter “ITK” Martin says he’s got an attitude problem 😂 https://t.co/ocGHuwVcYy

Footage suggests Ajer still wants to be here
If you say something often enough, it can become a fact.
Perhaps that’s been the case with rumours of Kristoffer Ajer wanting to leave the club.
His reaction to his countryman’s late winner suggests that his heart is very much still at Celtic.
Ajer clearly fancies another Europa League run, and definitely isn’t thinking of throwing in the towel.
Hopefully he can get back to performing the way we know he can in the coming weeks and months, forming a solid three-man partnership with Christopher Jullien and Shane Duffy in the process.
He may want to move on at some stage. That is pretty much a given. But for now he still has unfinished business in Glasgow.
