Kristoffer Ajer annoyed some of the Celtic support this week when he spoke about not being challenged enough in the SPFL at times.
Kristoffer was a great player for Celtic but he wasn’t infallible.
The Norweigan make the move from Celtic to Brentford this summer in a money spinning £15m deal.
Celtic fans have been discussing the comments made by Kris this week. There’s certainly a case for questioning these comments if you look at last season but I do feel some of the fans are trying to re-write history when it comes to the player’s overall contributions to Celtic.
Here’s a flavour of some of the comments I’m talking about.
Kris we conceded 29 goals last season with you as our main centre back https://t.co/SgPGPlZY5f

Kristoffer was a leader on the park for Celtic at times. Before last season, he had really come into his own and was a solid part of the backline. One bad season doesn’t make you a bad player and even at that, Kris was still comfortably one of our better players during the closed-door calamity.
The comment by Ajer is an honest answer to a question put to him. He didn’t go out his way to disparage the league but did admit the quality of the league isn’t the best at times – and we all know that!
I understand the protective nature Celtic fans have of the club, the team and the league at times but this has been blown out of proportion.
