KRISTOFFER AJER has spoken in glowing terms about his club life with Celtic as he takes a break from the ‘crazy’ nature of playing for Celtic.

The Norweigan has started to cement his place for his country after making the breakthrough with Celtic last season and he is loving every minute of it.

The midfielder turned defender has put in a lot of hard work and dedication to get to where he’s at right now.

Speaking to the media in Norway the big defender describes Celtic perfectly and shows an understanding that not all players to pull on the Hoops have shown.

“At Celtic, I play in big matches, play many games a year and learn from a fantastic manager. I’m in a fantastic place where I primarily play in a crazy big club where you are under pressure every weekend.

“I’m still humble and know that I have to be 100 per cent to handle it. But I manage to keep calm.

“I also learn every training with a very good support coaching staff with a lot of routine and not least I am part of a very competitive group.

The Norweigan has experienced mixed fortunes this International break with a win and a loss on the board to kick off their UEFA Nations League campaign.

Norway beat Cyprus 2-0 on Thursday last week but fell to a 1-0 defeat at the hand of Bulgaria.

The Celtic star will now head back to his club duties with Celtic set to take on St Mirren on Friday night in Paisley.

Ajer or Boyata could potentially be rested to allow Filip Benkovic to make his Celtic debut.

Elsewhere, there could be another debut for Youssouf Mulumbu.
