Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer had his shoulder pushed back into place after it popped out during Norway’s under-21 victory against Germany, according to report on the Daily Record.

The defender’s shoulder was forced out of place after he blocked a shot inside the penalty area.

However, Ajer showed his passion and commitment to his national side by returning to the action in a shock 3-1 victory for the Norwegians.

When you play for Norway, there’s a hell in you. The shoulder jumped out a bit, but I got it in place, and then it’s okay.

You just pull it into place and get onto the pitch. It hurts now, and hurts tomorrow, so it’s over a few days.

The 19-year-old centre-back, who can also operate in defensive midfield, confirmed that he is fit to play for Celtic and assured manager Brendan Rodgers that he is not going to be on the increasing injury list.

The Scottish champions are extremely thin in the defensive department after picking up several injuries, which could see Ajer in the first team.

Ajer has been labelled as a hero as Norway went on to defeat Germany in their under-21 European Championship qualifying clash.
