Celtic fans have called on manager Brendan Rodgers to start playing Kristoffer Ajer after what happened at Tynecastle on Sunday.

The Scottish treble winners were architechts of their own downfall on the day after a slapstick defensive showing from Dedryck Boyata and Jozo Simunovic contributed to the defeat.

Centre-back Ajer, 20, was an unused substitution, as he has been on 14 previous Premiership occasions this season, and fans of the Parkhead club want him to start against Partick on Wednesday.
