Kristoffer Ajer impressed for Norway in their crucial draw with Spain during the international break, and a return to form for the defender would be a big boost for Celtic.

Joshua King scored a 94th minute equaliser to keep Norway’s slim hopes of Euro 2020 qualification alive, after Saul Niguez gave Spain the lead.

Ajer has not been at his best for the Hoops at times this season, but according to 67 Hail Hail, Norwegian news outlets were full of praise for the defender, with Nettavisen rating his display a 7/10.

READ CELTIC VERDICT

Ajer’s strong performance for Norway could be a big boost for Celtic, after the defender’s recent run of inconsistent form for the Hoops.

Celtic return from the international break to another crucial set of fixtures after two below par performances in the league, and Ajer will no doubt be a key figure for Neil Lennon.

The defender will therefore need to ensure he continues the form he showed against Spain when he returns from international duty.

Do you think Ajer has been below par this season?

Yes

No
