Celtic fans loved Kristoffer Ajer’s performance against Partick Thistle

Celtic ensured they got back to winning ways on Wednesday night, beating Partick Thistle comfortably in the Scottish Premiership at Celtic Park.

After seeing their 69-game unbeaten run to an end on Sunday, it was important that Brendan Rodgers’ side bounced back immediately with a win and they duly delivered with goals from Stuart Armstrong and Kieran Tierney enough to secure the win.

The 2-0 victory means they move five points clear of Aberdeen at the top of the table, with the two sides due to meet this weekend in a massive festive clash.

Rodgers named largely the same side from the weekend, despite the heavy defeat, relying on stars who contributed massively to their unbeaten record.

One player did get a big chance though and that was 19-year-old Kristoffer Ajer. The Norwegian youngster started just his eighth game of the season, replacing Jozo Simunovic, and managed to impress supporters who have been critical of the defence recently.

Fans are now calling for him to get more games in the Hoops team, believing he could be the kind of player they need to settle down a shaky defensive line.

They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his performance…
