Jozo only played 125 games over 5 years awful return.

Still feel he made a decent contribution.
First season with us 17 games.
Next 3 seasons, 30 or more games.
This season around 15 games.

Always felt he played for the badge and was instrumental in the invincible season defensive record.

I can understand why we haven't offered him a new long term deal but in my opinion it's a bit of a risk not taking up the option of another year. If Ajer leaves or Jullien gets injured we will be left very light in that area.

Maybe buy a cb that can be relied on to stay fit.

Injuries are down to bad luck mate. Can happen to any player. there's not a player in the world you could buy at the moment that could be relied upon to stay fit and not get injured.

Jozo was captain of some very good Croatian youth teams up to 21s when we bought him. It's a shame injuries blighted the boys career with us a bit but I don't think we can be too disappointed with what we got from him in his time with us.

I liked Jozo when he was fit and I must admit, if somebody had asked me how many games he played for us I would have thought less than 125. Good luck to him. Maybe a warmer climate will keep him fit longer.

A liked jozo he was a proper defender with a nasty streak but the reality is he wa always injured. Agree he was unlucky. but let's get a good solid cb signed.

It's up to Celtic if and when Ajer leaves so I wouldn't be too worried about that Buster. Jozo is decent enough when he's on the pitch but it was always difficult to actually get him there in the first place. Then just as he was looking to get into a rhythm he'd either get injured or be forced to sit out due to the pitch etc. This might be unfair or petty but I was finished with him after the Copenhagen game.

{Ed007's Note - Maybe in the good old days, Kev clubs decided when players moved on but these days if a player wants out 9 times out of 10 they will get their wish and as things stand Ajer wants out.
Now it's up to Lennon, Kennedy and guys like Brown to get in his ear to try and change his mind, or would a new improved deal & a promise he will be allowed to move next summer help sway him to stay for another year?}

Totally agree Ed but what I meant was with regards to us being caught short if he goes. I think he'll probably go this summer but the club will have every opportunity to plan for it and have something else lined up for when/ if he does. Having said that, Dembele showed that these best laid plans can turn on a Tanner.

{Ed007's Note - Oh right, I misunderstood you mate, sorry. With Simunovic being released so promptly and the uncertainty regarding Ajer's future I'm sure Hammond will have already made some progress with potential signings.}

I think we'll need to sign 3 new centre backs to be honest. Ajer will go and we can't depend upon bitton or elhamed to stay fit.

I am a big fan of Ajer but if he wants to leave then feck getting in his ear. Punt him and bring in a replacement.
Like wee Strachan said
“If people don’t want to come here, win titles and play with good players at the highest level in Europe in front of 60,000 fans with a chance of becoming a legendary figure that’s fine by me, If you can get that elsewhere, then fair enough. ”

Same applies to any player here. You don't want to be here for one of the most legendary seasons in the clubs history then do one.

He isn't the greatest defender either Kev.

01 Jun 2020 20:10:52
He is a very good defender.

02 Jun 2020 00:50:37
Ajer a very good defender?
Where about Kev, he is mince in the air for his height. Forever got his hands all over good strikers as his positional play gets him in trouble, gave away a few pens last season also. He is never a CB in my opinion, infront of the back four I think he would be a different animal. Breaking up play as he is good at tackling and his striding forward runs would be more dangerous if he were a bit further up the field.

Ajer is a very good 21/ 22 year old Centre half . We were lucky Ronny got him to sign for us . As far as I remember he was still at school and was continuing his education. I reckon he gives his best wherever he plays in the back four . Some times fans reckon he would be best suited to playing in front of back four or as a defensive midfielder.
I find this strange as he has rarely played outside our back four, yet without seeing him play as defensive midfield they think he is better playing there than c. back.
