Fans of Celtic have taken to Twitter to criticise the performance of Hoops centre-forward Albian Ajeti in the Bhoys’ Scottish Premiership fixture against Aberdeen.
Since joining Celtic from West Ham United in what was a £4.95 million deal back in August of last year, Ajeti has so far gone on to make 18 Premiership appearances for Neil Lennon’s side, scoring six goals and providing one assist, as well as averaging a WhoScored match rating of 6.70 – ranking him as the club’s 10th-worst performer in the Scottish top flight, prior to the Aberdeen fixture.
However, despite scoring just one goal over his last 12 league appearances, Lennon opted to start the £13.5k-per-week 23-year-old against the Dons on Wednesday evening, although, it would appear that the efforts of the Switzerland international did not go down overly well with many Celtic fans.
Is Ajeti good enough for Celtic?
So, what exactly did these Celtic fans have to say in reaction to the performance of Albian Ajeti against Aberdeen?
“Ajeti anonymous again tonight.”
“Ajeti has been awful again.”
“Ajeti reminds me of Tony Cascarino the way he plods around the pitch.”
“Ajeti looks lost.”
“Ajeti is an absolute waste of £5m”
“I can’t emphasise this enough… Ajeti is horrific. Easily the worst striker I’ve seen at Celtic”
“Neil Lennon needs to hook Ajeti, we are playing with ten men!”
“What does Ajeti bring to that team? Looks unfit – don’t see any future for him at Celtic.”
“Ajeti just isn’t Celtic class.”
“Not having Ajeti. Don’t see it at all. 9m on him & Klimala is going to prove a monumental waste of money.”
“Think that might be the last time we see Ajeti starting. He is woefully ill-suited to our game for reasons I honestly don’t know. But the fact Lennon won’t play Griffiths says more about Lennon than Griff.”
All in all, it would appear that these Celtic fans were far from happy with the performance of Ajeti, and, considering the striker managed no shots, lost possession of the ball six times and earned a disappointing SofaScore rating of 6.6 in the fixture, it is not difficult to see why.
