Celtic won 2-1 against Aberdeen and deserved the three points on the day.
Sour grapes Derek McInnes has chosen to make an accusation of cheating against one of our players this evening after Sam Cosgrove got himself sent off for a reckless challenge on the Norwegian.
With the game sitting at 2-1, Ajer made a world class tackle which stopped Aberdeen and Cosgrove from having a chance to equalise. The defender won the ball cleanly before jumping up and keeping the ball in play. At which point Cosgrove ran in at pace knowing full well what he was doing and recklessly lunged at Ajer. He was sent off and rightfully so but McInnes insists Ajer milked it, play acted and then winked at Cosgrove from the ground.
🗣 Derek McInnes on Cosgrove's red card:
"When you go in at speed like that you've got to make sure you get the ball and 100% it's a brilliant tackle.
"You've got big Ajer winking at him and laughing at him lying on the ground – there's nothing wrong with him".

McInnes has previous for backing his players in ludicrous situations. Aberdeen were outplayed today and his striker seen red mist when Ajer won them ball. Simple as that.
