Frank McAvennie claims the new Celtic manager should sell Kristoffer Ajer after he threw his teammates under the bus. 

The former Celtic hitman, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed any new manager should ship Ajer off to Italy or Germany after his recent comments.

At the end of March, Ajer made controversial comments in which he claimed he was having his best season for Celtic despite the Hoops’ on-field struggles.

He is quoted by the Daily Record as saying, “If I am only to look at my performances, it may have been my best season at the club.”

McAvennie claims these comments were out of order and disrespectful before insisting that the defender should be shipped out of Celtic when a new manager takes over.

“I think the manager will want rid of him, he hasn’t done anything,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs.

“Ajer doesn’t even want to head the ball so he has to go and play in Italy or Germany where they play with it at the back. 

“Celtic need someone who can go and win the ball and he’s not the man to do that, no disrespect to him. 

“It’s just not in his make-up and he flung his teammates under the bus last week when he said it’s his best-ever season, I thought that was a strange one. 

“No, he’ll not stay.”

Ajer has started 30 of Celtic’s 33 Scottish Premiership games this season as the Hoops struggled and missed the chance the win a historic 10th title in a row.
