Albian Ajeti not good enough for Celtic, claims pundit

There isn’t much more Albian Ajeti can do than score two goals in two games for Celtic in the league – especially with his only other appearance coming in a seven-minute cameo against St Johnstone.

The Swiss striker scored twice in his first start since April in Celtic’s 3-0 win over Ross County with two headers, as he looks to stake a claim following the sale of Odsonne Edouard and the injury suffered by Kyogo Furuhashi.

Yet, despite his solid introduction to the first team, there are still some who are unsure on Ajeti’s ability.

He scored five goals in six Premier League games at the start of last season, but Ajeti then only scored once in that time spell, over the course of 14 league games.

And it was for this reason that pundit Frank McAvennie believes he still won’t succeed at Celtic Park.

“I don’t think Ajeti is going to be number nine for Celtic,” McAvennie said.

“I just don’t see it, he doesn’t move enough. The way Celtic play with such high energy doesn’t suit him. Him getting those goals tells me he can do it, which is a big boost.It was a surprise but we need to see much more.

“Postecoglou will want him to do a lot more running and if he does that then it will only help Celtic. He has to do it every game though, he can’t just be a big target man, he has to move.“

It is harsh to criticise Ajeti this early in to the season given the influence he’s had already, but at least give him a chance, eh Frank?

  1. Macca might talk tosh at times but he is spot on here. When Ajeti remarks he has nothing to prove, he shows he is deluding himself possibly like you too.
