I think he's lost them

Kristoffer Ajer has rejected claims from his manager Neil Lennon that a “confidence” issue is affecting some of the Celtic squad.

Lennon made the assertion following the 3-3 draw at Aberdeen that leaves the Scottish champions winless in three games - and smarting over the concession of eight goals in that sequence, following the 2-0 defeat by Rangers and 3-1 loss to Milan inside eight days.

“I don’t feel that,” he said when told of Lennon’s assessment. “I feel really confident. This is a squad full of winners who are not happy when we don’t get three points. Obviously we want to get back to winning games and hope we can do that soon.”

Ajer’s defensive partner Shane Duffy appears one of those toiling. He was badly at fault for the goal that allowed Aberdeen to take a 2-1 lead, before Celtic netted twice inside two minutes only to be pegged back in the final seconds courtesy of Lewis Ferguson’s second spot-kick conversion. However, the Norwegian called for responsibility to be shared equally among those in the club’s colours.

“We attack as a team and we defend as a team. It’s easy for people to single out players but this is a team and it works both ways. We scored three goals collectively and we also conceded three at the other end, including two penalties. It’s all a collective.”

Communication has been cited as a problem, but Ajer dismissed that too. “We communicate great with each other,” he said. “We all know our jobs and where to be on the pitch so we don’t always have to talk to each other.”

Definitely backfiring so far on them 😂

Pushing the old firm back and now giving us the opportunity to go 9 clear, while they play a cup that really shouldn't be going ahead imo. 

Trophy is worth fuck all, it’s completely different squads!

Tell you what, when Ajer played at Ibrox against utter dross he looked a player with the ball at his feet but he is fucking dug meat compared to what they made him out to be

Even with a better player alongside him, no way is he getting ahead of Goldson, Helander or Katic, probably not even Balogun

And, he speaks like an utter cunt.

Arrogant fanny who thinks he's a world beater. Fits in well; chose the right team.

It's telling that he's gone back to the 3-5-2 formation MON used 20 years ago.  That's all the tactical knowledge he has to fall back on.  The guy is a dinosaur and he's obviously got something wrong with him to lose the dressing room at Hib and now Celtic.  His interview after the Ferencvaros game was an embarrassment.  'The players have been wanting out for months' then a few days later it's all swept under the carpet.  

Lennon resorting to type now. He'll blame officials and players before accepting any responsibility himself. 

A fractured dressing room couldn't come at a better time. Hard run of fixtures coming up. If they drop more points and if we pull further away. It will be full scale meltdown at the chamber of horrors.

Reminds me of how they thought they did a bargain with Loovens back in the day :lol: A happy day for Rangers that day was. Most of them seem to think they are signing world beaters, whom Hartson will price tag at 50m, at least. Deluded.

The other day after the Milan game he said that hes past the point of his career, where he would blame things on his own players. Ferencvaros comments come to mind and it would be not long until he strikes again. It gets funnier.

Where the fuck is Hartson this weekend? Haven’t heard from him, unless I missed it mate.
