Celtic supporters have taken to social media to give their views on defender Kristoffer Ajer’s performance in the 3-1 win against Hamilton on Wednesday night.

The 19-year-old Norweigan central defender was starting only his second Scottish Premiership game of the season for the Hoops, and his performance was highly-rated by supporters, in a game which the Hoops won 3-1.

One even went as far as to claim that he was “more solid at the back” then defensive mainstay Jozo Simunovic, and supporters were impressed with his challenge which lead to James Forrest’s goal.

Here are a few of the best reactions on Twitter to Ajer’s performance:

The youngster was signed by former Hoops boss Ronny Deila in January 2016 from Start, and spent all of last season on-loan at Kilmarnock.

As for the game itself, Celtic remain clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership after a win over Hamilton.

Olivier Ntcham put the Hoops into the lead with a fine volley, before Daniel Redmond equalised out of nothing for Hamilton.

The game was changed in a minute before half-time, when goals from James Forrest and Scott Sinclair in quick succession put the Bhoys 3-1 up at half-time.

Despite both sides having chances in the second-half, there were no further goals and the Hoops ended the night clear at the top of the league.
