The Hoops defender has long been one of Parkhead's best performers but his form for the Bhoys has stuttered recently.

A number of Celtic fans have been commenting on Twitter about the Hoops drawing against Hibernian and one of the players who was in the spotlight was defender Kristoffer Ajer.

The 21-year-old has long been deemed one of the Bhoys' best players but he had a day to forget at Easter Road, turning Christian Doidge's cross into his own net to give Hibs the lead just eight minutes in.



Admittedly Ajer was unlucky with the own goal, but it could be argued he could have done better, and was also booked for a needless sliding tackle in the middle of the park near the end of the first half.

The Norway international's form has stuttered a bit since his return from injury and, with Celtic's city rivals in good form and snapping at the Bhoys' heels in the Scottish Premiership table, Neil Lennon and co need him to get back to his unplayable best.

Here is what some of the Parkhead faithful on social media made of the £15million-rated (Leicester Mercury) player's display on the day:

Ajer joined Celtic in July 2016 during Ronny Deila's tenure and initially made a slow start to life at Parkhead but soon became indispensable for the Hoops, making 45 appearances in all competitions last term (Transfermarkt).

Up next for the Bhoys is Thursday's Europa League clash against CFR Cluj at Parkhead.
