Kris Ajer has been overlooked by his fellow professionals for the Young Player of the Year award but not by the Celtic support.

The Norwegian kid has been one of the outstanding contributors to this season’s efforts and will start next season as a first pick.

Since the turn of the year Ajer has been almost ever present in the Celtic defence with Neil Lennon full of praise for the talent that he inherited as caretaker boss.

Among many highlights this season the 21-year-old was outstanding in the March Glasgow derby despite suffering an early head knock.

One of the key moments in the match was a goal line clearance from Nottingham Forest starlet Joe Worral in the closing minutes.

After the final whistle Ajer handed his jersey to a young fan, after it was removed by a steward Ajer made contact with the fan through social media to ensure that he got a signed jersey.
