Kristoffer Ajer Backs Celtic To Respond Due To Togetherness In The Squad

Kristoffer Ajer has spoken to the club website, suggesting that Celtic will return to form with hard work and togetherness.

Celtic were disappointed not to take three points yesterday, leaving Pittodrie without a win for the third match in a row. The Bhoys did show character to twice overturn a disadvantage, but ultimately undid their good work with three terrible goals conceded.

Ajer made one of his trademark runs out from the back in the lead up to Elyounoussi getting fouled, something he was “delighted” to have contributed. However, as a defender, he was displeased with conceding three goals and coming away with a point.

The Norwegian said: “I was delighted to help with one of the goals but I’m never delighted when we lose three goals,” said the Norwegian defender. “We’ve conceded too many goals over the last week and we have to change that.

“It was a really emotional game. We went into half-time not happy with conceding the goal and we felt we had a lot of the ball but didn’t create enough chances.

“Tom and Cal combine really well to score the first goal. I felt like we were really getting going then but they’re always dangerous on the break. They have a few really skilful players upfront that ca hurt you and they did exactly that.

“I was delighted to help with one of the goals but I’m never delighted when we lose three goals. We’ve conceded too many goals over the last week and we have to change that.”

Despite recent results, Ajer takes confidence from the characters in the team and the hunger to win. He concluded by saying: “This is a great bunch of players who have been through so much over the last few years. We always stick together, we work hard every day in training and we’ll work hard to get back to winning ways.”
