CELTIC’S KRIS AJER has been included in the SPFL Team of the Week after earning Man of the Match in the 2-0 win over Kilmarnock on Sunday. The Norwegian defender has excelled at right back and Neil Lennon will be happy with this, especially as Hatem Abd Elhamed looks close to leaving the club.

The Norwegian defender has been the subject of interest from various clubs but opted to stay and help win 10IAR with Celtic.

Ajer will likely be retained for the Scottish Cup Final at right-back alongside Christoper Jullien and Shane Duffy. Although, Neil Lennon faces a selection headache with Tom Rogic, Ryan Christie and Scott Brown all hoping for a recall to the starting XI.

Just 90 minutes and a high-flying Championship Hearts side stand between Celtic and a quadruple Treble. The Tynecastle side retained a lot of their stars that were relegated and will see the game on Sunday as an opportunity to prove that they are up to the Premiership standard.
