“To have so many young players producing such a fine performance against a team that’s won the Champions League for the last three years was really impressive,” 

“It shows that, if you have a really good structure for a number of years then you can deliver good results. We can use that to inspire us because we have a really good pathway for our academy players at this club,” added the centre-back.

The Norwegian was also optimistic about bringing good players to the Celtic Park in future.

He praised the prospects of the Hoops who were performing at a higher level. Ajer also lauded the skipper Scott Brown calling him a great leader.

The Hoops were stunned after Brendan Rodgers opted out a shocking move to Leicester City.

Neil Lennon, the caretaker manager, has taken the helm since then and led his side to two big wins.

The Norwegian youngster has been a pivotal for the Hoops this season. The 20-year-old was praised highly for his performance against Valencia in the Europa League despite losing the game.

The Premiership table leaders are currently eyeing for their eighth consecutive title win. They are slated to face their arch-rivals Rangers or Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup semi-finals.
