Kristoffer Ajer made an absolutely outstanding last ditch tackle at Celtic Park this afternoon with Aberdeen rushing in on goal. With the momentum of the attack with Aberdeen, Ajer made a quick decision to make the tackle.
When you come off your feet and you’re the last line of defence you have to get it! Ajer did just that.
The Norwegian not only won the ball but even managed to keep the ball from going out for a corner. This resulted in Sam Cosgrove losing the head, rushing in on Ajer who had retrieved the ball and smashed the defender for no reason other than frustration.

Celtic are five points clear at the top of the table with their tenth win in a row in the SPFL.
The bhoys took a sore one against the run of play when Cosgrove equalised in the first half.
They rallied in the second half and made sure of the three points with that man Edouard getting the all important winner.
