"Lifetime contract", "Thank you admin"; Celtic fans loving Kristoffer Ajer content

Imagine not liking Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer.

The big Norwegian has been one of few to come out of this season with credit. Yes, he’s not perfect defending set-pieces. However, his command, his leadership and his assured defensive organisation has – in spells – impressed supporters. More recently, he’s added marauding, van Dijk style runs to his game, and it’s good fun.

Provided, that is, we don’t concede.

Fans are clearly enamoured with the guy. Ajer was an incredibly shrewd signing from IK Start back in 2017, on a free deal [Sky Sports]. Certainly a humble sort, he spoke about passing his exams and his driving license during his first press conference with the club.

Averaging 1.3 tackles and 1.4 interceptions per game for a club who see more of the ball than the opposition is pretty good going [WhoScored?]. One of our top performers this season, you could put Ajer in a small group including David Turnbull, Ismaila Soro, Greg Taylor, Stephen Welsh and Odsonne Edouard who haven’t diminished their value in 20-21.

So, it was obvious that the reaction to Celtic’s social media content would be one of appreciation for big Kris Ajer.
