Kristoffer Ajer has been a huge success for Celtic in recent weeks but the Norwegian teenager but has still admitted that he knows he must continue his good form throughout the season.
The 19-year-old defender replaced Jozo Simunovic at in the heart of the Bhoys central defence after the club’s British record of domestic matches without defeat came to and end at 69 games.
Since than Ajer and partner Dedryck Boyata have helped the Hoops to five consecutive clean sheets, the ost recent being in the goal less Old Firm match.
Ajer has claimed that even though the results have been good for the side, he doesn’t expect to start every game for the Scottish champions.
“December was really good for me. I just hope I’ll get more game time in the months to come,” Ajer said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“But football can change so quickly. I never take it for granted that I will start the next game.
“I know I need to perform, I know it’s expected that we win. I’ll always look forward and never take it for granted.”
The competition for places at centre-back has increased in January since the arrival of new signing Marvin Compper so Ajer is correct in his claims that he doesn’t take starts for granted.
The Bhoys are currently in Dubai as their winter break comes to an end, and Ajer will be hoping to start the first match after the winter break when Celtic begin their defence of the Scottish Cup with a home tie against struggling Championship side Brechin City on Saturday.
