“We are massive”

Celtic fans can you get 8/8 on this quiz on forgotten players. First up, who is this?

Kristoffer Ajer is said to be unhappy with his situation at the club and the Norwegian is looking to leave the club this summer. Celtic have already rejected bids for the defender. Ajer’s exit would leave a slot free in the centre-back position and considering Starfelt is an established player, he may be able to replace Ajer soon enough.
