KRISTOFFER AJER posted on social media yesterday he was delighted with the victory but was obviously upset to see red very late in the day for a lapse in concentration.
With Celtic 2-0 up and cruising, Ajer got his feet in a muddle and lost the ball at the edge of the centre circle, letting St Johnstone in for a chance at goal. The Norweigan made an ill-judged challenge and was sent packing to end the match on a sour note.
Celtic defenders are thin on the ground at the moment due to injury so to have Ajer missing for the Hibs game is a more significant blow than it would have been otherwise.
Taking to social media after the game, Ajer apologised, but it would be Scott Brown, in true captain style who would take the flak for Ajer replying to the defender by saying ‘My bad’.
Brown referring to the short pass he made to Ajer before the incident which set the wheels in motion.
