Celtic fans react to Kristoffer Ajer performance v Motherwell
Celtic fans on Twitter have heaped praise on centre-back Kristoffer Ajer for his performance in the match against Motherwell, which ended 0-0.
The 19-year-old has become a firm favourite of supporters since becoming a first team regular in December, and he has quickly become a first choice defender for Brendan Rodgers.
Here are some of the best reactions to Ajer’s performance at Fir Park:

Ajer has been excellent for the Hoops since replacing Jozo Simunovic in the heart of the Hoops defence in December.
The Norwegian has showed plenty of composure in his playing time for the Bhoys, the match against the Steelmen his 17th in a row for the Scottish champions.
He has done very well when you consider the fact that he hasn’t had one defensive partner since making his breakthrough in the side.

At times he has been paired with Dedryck Boyata, Jack Hendry and Simunovic, and has played in both a three and four man system.
The teenager has recently been awarded with his first call-up to the Norwegian senior squad, and he looks to have a very bright future in the game.
Hoops fans will be hoping that he stays in Glasgow for a few years to come.
