“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.
