The Dons striker launched a high speed two footed attack on the Celtic defender with referee Euan Anderson issuing an instant red card.
Derek McInnes described it as a great tackle while accusing Ajer of rolling around laughing and winking, a theme that his new chairman picked up on late on Christmas Day.
Law = fairness & consistency. Sam will take his ban but the compliance officer has a duty to review Ajer feigning injury with his triple salvo and miraculous recovery after Sam gets the red.

The timing of the tweet suggests that Cormack may have been tired and emotional when he turned to Twitter, if he really feels that Cosgrove has been wronged perhaps he can add an appearance fee to the absent striker’s January pay packet.
SFA rules specifically warn against making derogatory comments about opposing employees, on his recent record it is highly unlikely that Peter Lawwell will demand an apology from Cormack or the SFA hand out a disrepute charge.
Cormack took over as chairman of Aberdeen earlier this month from Stewart Milne, it remains to be seen if he will show any interest in Financial Fair Play or if he just enjoys a cheap soundbite for the Dons support while ignoring the real issues facing his club and Scottish football.
Giroud?: Olivier Giroud here who’s calling?
