Celtic fans have called on manager Brendan Rodgers to start playing Kristoffer Ajer after what happened at Tynecastle on Sunday.
The Hoops lost their 69-match unbeaten run in ruthless fashion as Rodgers's all-conquering Invincibles went down 4-0 at Hearts.
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.
Ajer A deserves a run of games— marc (@marc_celtic) December 17, 2017
Celtic need to buy a new centre half and a keeper. Been obvious for about a year. Give Ajer a chance too.— E (@EuazoX2) December 17, 2017
Time for Ajer— Harald (@HaraldNN) December 17, 2017
Time for Ajer to come in and steady the ship— Kieran Caw (@Kieran_Celtic) December 17, 2017
I do find it a bit strange that Rodgers has usually turned to Bitton ahead of Ajer. Doesn't seem to fancy him much. Surely deserves a decent chance— Graeme Ellis (@3ll15_) December 17, 2017
ajer looks half decent , but rodgers deserve some investment in the team !— gary mccabe (@gazzamac1977) December 17, 2017
Big Ajer must be poor in training I would love to know why BR doesn't fancy him?#alwaysinvincibles— BR10IAR (@JosephMcgonigle) December 17, 2017
The Norwegian powerhouse arrived at Celtic under Rodgers but the Northern Irishman's predecessor Ronny Deila had done the deal to sign him in the January before he left Glasgow.
Rodgers, for whatever reason, doesn't seem to fully trust him as of yet, but an excellent performance against Partick in midweek would surely endear him to the former Liverpool boss.
