Some Celtic fans have been left delighted by the performance and goal from defender Kristoffer Ajer in the club’s recent win over Aberdeen.

Ajer was on the scoresheet for the Hoops on Sunday, as he grabbed a late winner for the side. Callum McGregor had scored in the first half before Ash Taylor equalised for the opposition soon after.

Is CB Ajer's best position?

Yes, he's done well there

But Ajer’s goal has left many Bhoys fans chuffed. They can’t stop hailing the defender’s goal and his performance at the Pittodrie.

Ajer has made a total of 43 appearances in all competitions for the club, with 25 of them coming in the Premiership. He has now scored two goals in the league, also picking up a couple of assists. His first goal of the campaign came against Motherwell early in the season.

The Norwegian arrived at the club in the summer of 2016. He scored one goal in all competitions last season, which makes this season the best return of his Celtic career.

What do we think?

The goal could be a big one in the club’s march towards the Premiership title. Slipping up could have allowed Rangers back into the race and cut the gap at the top, while Ajer deserves praise for his match-winning goal.
