It has not been a good week for Celtic. The 4-3 loss to Cluj which saw the club exit the Champions League was a hammer blow to the club.

The Hoops are in need of some good news to get the fans back on side. A major signing or new contract for a player would be a way of doing that.

The Daily Record may provide the fillip that Celtic fans need. They are reporting that the Hoops are set to offer Kristoffer Ajer a new contract to keep him at the club for years to come.

That move would be welcomed by the Hoops support. Like many of team-mates, Ajer didn’t have the best of games against Cluj.

However, he has been in excellent form for the most part this season, and for the second-half of last season. He is a man that Celtic should be building the team around for years to come.

Therefore, it makes sense for the Hoops to offer Ajer a new deal. He has shown his versatility by playing at both centre-back and right-back so far this season.

That kind of versatility is extremely valuable to the Hoops. Neil Lennon will be keen to get a deal for Ajer sorted as soon as possible. As will the Hoops support.
