Ajer’s farewell comment catches some Celtic fans out

Kris Ajer picked out John Kennedy for a special mention as he signed off from five years at Celtic.

Almost 200 appearances over four seasons and a profit of over £10m makes the transfer one of the most successful business deals in Celtic’s history.

The name check for Kennedy was something of a surprise to Celtic fans on social media with the 38-year-old having his reputation tarnished for his involvement last season.

When Kennedy stayed on at Celtic when Brendan Rodgers upped sticks in February 2019 he was widely praised but last season’s collapse seems to have changed that perception.

As a central defender Ajer will have turned to the assistant manager/first team coach for help as his career developed in that position but it seems that the praise goes a bit deeper than tips on defensive positioning.

Kennedy has been retained by Ange Postecoglou, if one of the biggest success stories of the Quadruple Treble decides to highlight his role it is a view worth listening to.
