I've just seen a quote from Ajer about how he wants to leave now to ensure we get some money for him and that he's a huge fan but he needs to make sure we get money for him! Well why doesn't he stay? If he loves the club that much - why doesn't he stay and try to become a legend. Because at the moment he's a jumped up youth who's not the player he thinks he is. He's the first 20 million pound player I've seen who's only had a handful of good games. I'd let him rot away in the reserves for that nonsense - faux care about how the club fares after you leave and supposed fandom won't get you anywhere, Kristoffer.

Grass is always greener. so they think.

Regi, I dunno what you're trying to say there but it doesn't look like you're a big fan of Ajer. HH.

Unfortunately, rotting in the reserves does nobody any good. If he wants to go, let him, and wish him well. If he's done well for us, we make money out of him.
Maybe, at the tail end of his career, and if it's a great career, we could maybe get him back, improved, better, and he helps a bunch of youngsters progress, aka, Bertie Auld.
He may think twice though if he's severely slated for wanting to leave, or left rotting in the reserves. Chill, be cool with him leaving. Everybody does at some point. Celtic will still be there, and we should be looking forward, not back.

I think a lot of people underestimate Ajer, without him last season would have been a he'll of a lot worse. The boys trying to be respectful while pushing for a move. At the end of the day, no matter how much you love your job, if you were getting offered more money elsewhere I can guarantee 99% of us would take it. Remember this is a job for these guys as well and they retire very early, so it's smart for them to try and make as much money as they can while playing. Good luck big Ajer wherever you end up 👍.

I think he is trying to keep the support 'onside' with his reasons and to be honest how different is that to VVD, Hooper, KT and even way back to Dalglish. He has served the club very well - in a position that is not his natural and best - but like most of us realizes the limitations of Celtic and the SPL at this time.
We could make a couple of full teams from the players who have had 'ambition' for a higher standard and bigger pay-packet; although there are quite a few for whom, the grass was not always greener career-wise, if not financially.

8 to 10 million I would take. He's vastly overated. The amount of goals he cost us last season was shocking.

I also never understand why fans say let him rot in the reserves who does that benefit? Take the money and run I say.

First Edouard and now Ajer - stupid comments they are over rated and get them out. The 2 best players at our club over the last few years and they want better than playing in the SPL.

The fans have been fuming since Lennon returned and brought the standards down maybe the players are just as scunnered.

05 Jun 2021 09:46:15
Regi WTF? He's the worst 20M player you have seen then you say - why doesn't he stay and try and become a legend? Then you pathetically say we should let him rot in the reserves? What is wrong with you? Seriously? Spiteful and petty BS. Sure Ajer makes mistakes he's a young CB. He has been nothing but committed to Celtic and hasn't down tools once.
In a season which was less than stellar he played reasonably well in an underperforming team. We should be complementing the effort when our players try their very best. Not tearing them down at every opportunity. You can love a club and still have ambition to test yourself. I wish him well and thank him for his service to our club.

Im not quite sure what the problem is. If kt can leave, where he’s a massive fan and loves the club, to progress his career, we have to accept we aren’t going to hold onto decent young players for a long period of time.
Even when we were dominating, it maybe became too easy for some of these players . When we made the jump to European football we generally failed and failed miserably . The players aren’t stupid, they can only progress so much with us and the league we played in. It hurts to say it but the the difference in quality between some of these leagues and ours are massive. As much as we get attached to these players they aren’t going to stay for more than 3 seasons. I appreciate we offer the chance to win trophies, play in front of big crowds, and possibly gain experience of euro football. On the other side, on 3 or 4 pitches they are playing on crappy plastic, come through what looks like some pensioners sitting room to come out at rugby park.

I personally like Ajer, he's played well on the right side of the defence and scored some goals from there.
I would have made him Captain for next season because I think there is a player there.
As has been said before, he's young and he will make mistakes, but so does everyone else in the team.
I will be sad to see him go, so wish him all the best if he does.

Good replies from SOS-BHOY and Kev T2 👍.

Ajer had his worst season with us and fans were calling him player of the year. It shows how bad we were. He has regressed in the past 18 months and 8 to 10 mil is a good deal. His commitment can't be questioned but I don't think he is as good as people think.

05 Jun 2021 12:55:02
That’s the thing about Celtic in the SPL I know we’re a Scottish club but we are one of the biggest in the world and it’s only when players leave for a Newcastle or Norwich that they realise this. Good riddance he not committed.

05 Jun 2021 15:51:25
I agree. Dc. He has went backwards Found wanting on numerous occasions I take on board he’s had different partners / team mates and a lack of strong keeper behind in a team underperforming but can’t justify some of his glaring individual errors I wish him all the best for the future and thank him for efforts It’s for the best he moves on. we really don’t know and are not likely to find out till he publish memoirs how not getting leave last summer affected him and his role in squad in early months of season. I think had impact on his and hence our performances. IMO He lacks the instinct of natural defender As others have posted I think he be best in holding midfielder role where he’s not the last line of defence I. Think regi was getting at he’s the first 20 million pound player who in truth has had a small number of good games at top level champs league/ Europa and I think more than a bit tongue in cheek with if u so concerned on us getting a good transfer fee then why not stay Rot in reserves a bit much tho regi 😀. All in all Times right for him to go.

We need to remember that ajer is out of contract next summer and if we don't sell now then he will leave for free.

Beside that, we have a massive rebuild ahead and that will take up a huge chunk of change. For that reason alone, we need to sell for as big a fee as we can get for all our departing players. Suggesting we let him rot in the reserves is showing a lack of foresight.

P. s. ollie mcburnie cost around 20 million, who would you rather have from these two?

Ducking out of the shot from Morelos summed him up for me. He celebrates when he makes simple tackles and it's always someone else's fault when he messes up. Let's just get the best amount of money for him we can and move on. A really committed player takes that shot in the face and should be happy to do it, especially against them.
