Celtic supporters reckon Albian Ajeti is looking fitter, leaner and sharper after watching new footage from Lennoxtown today.

Ajeti struggled in his debut season at Celtic Park, often finding himself on the outside looking in.

He did manage to make 30 appearances but 17 of those came from the bench and the performances were rarely impressive. The phrase ‘towing a caravan’ was often used.

Celtic posted a new video from training this week on social media today, which we’ve already given a verdict of ‘amazing’ on after watching Ange Postecoglou in action.

However, eagle-eyed supporters were quick to pick out details you may have missed. One of those was Ajeti.

Twitter user MB1984_ posted the screenshot, which quickly drew agreement from fellow fans.

It could well be that Ajeti has been putting in the hard yards ahead of the new season. He’ll know as well as anyone this could be a make-or-break season for him at Celtic.

With Odsonne Edouard potentially leaving the club and Leigh Griffiths unlikely to be sticking around beyond next year, Ajeti may find himself earning far more opportunities.

He needs to be as sharp as possible for this eventuality. We already know that Postecoglou isn’t going to entertain passengers.

If Ajeti is up for the fight of the new manager’s high-risk pressing game, he could well thrive and begin to prove himself to supporters.

These fans are enjoying the early signs anway, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts…
