CELTIC’S Kristoffer Ajer became the latest Celtic casualty as the bhoys played out a frustrating 0-0 draw against Livingston.
The Norweigan started the match in front of Filip Benkovic because of the artificial surface.
Brendan Rodgers did not want to risk the Croatian on the plastic surface, especially when Benkovic is managing a slight calf problem.
Ajer came in for the £12million Leicester loanee and did well before and disaster struck when the big defender went to head the ball in the Livingston box.
There was a coming together and the back of the Livi player’s head cracked Ajer’s face and it looks to have broken the youngster’s cheekbone.

Celtic have already got a long list of injuries and Ajer will be in the treatment room alongside the likes of Scott Brown, Nir Bitton and Leigh Griffiths.
It looks a very sore one and we hope the big man recovers quickly from this nasty knock.
