'Get a grip' - Celtic fans besiege Chris Sutton for omitting first teamer from his TOTW
Celtic fans on Twitter have reacted angrily to the news that Chris Sutton has left Kristoffer Ajer out of his SPFL Team Of The Week.
Sutton revealed the team on his personal Twitter account, and fans were dismayed that not only was Ajer left out after his stand-out performance against Aberdeen, but that he picked three Rangers players compared to two Celtic players.
One supporter on social media claimed that the former Hoops striker turned BT Sport pundit was ‘going soft’ with the lack of Hoops players selected.
The Gers players named in the side are Greg Docherty, Russell Martin and Jamie Murphy, with Scott Brown and Kieran Tierney the Bhoys selected.

First teamer Ajer, 19, held a creaking Hoops defence together in the win at Pittodrie, as the ten man Bhoys emerged from Pittodrie with the win.
Here is a selection of tweets from Celtic fans besieging Sutton for Ajer’s omission:
Your going soft , 3 zombies in there Chris get a grip .

You need to start looking closer at Ajer. Definitely worth a shout again.

Ajer has been one of the best performers for the Hoops since he replaced Jozo Simunovic in the centre of defence following the 4-0 loss to Hearts in December.
He starred in the goalless draw against Rangers in December, and was one of the few players to emerge with any credit from the 3-0 Europa League defeat to Zenit.
