Albian Ajeti has caught attention after an important brace for Celtic to hand the Bhoys a convincing 3-0 SPFL win over Ross County.

The Swiss striker, formerly of FC Basel and West Ham, wrapped up the win after a nervy start and a dogged display from Ross County was broken by a deflected header from new loanee Cameron Carter-Vickers.

Ajeti has struggled to find consistency in the green and white Hoops of Celtic, with his brace at the weekend standing as his first goals in a competitive game for the club since February.

The Celtic striking department has endured plenty of shaking up. Leigh Griffiths was shipped out on loan to Dundee F.C. whilst Odsonne Edouard joined Premier League club Crystal Palace.

In terms of incomings, Ajeti is not without competition; breakout star Kyogo Furuhashi came in over the summer but is out with injury, while he also has new Bhoy Giorgos Giakoumakis to compete with.

Popular Celtic fan account Everything Celtic (@aboutceltic) took to Twitter to defend the Swiss striker after his impressive brace:

“Even when Ajeti scores a double he’s people out after him”, noted the page in a Tweet.

“He’s a striker who scored who twice, you want you’re striker to score goals… would you rather he ran about aimlessly & didn’t score any?!”

Ajeti’s brace will buoy the Bhoy with confidence and has shown he still possesses the talent to remain a competitive option at Premiership level.

Given his struggles to consistently score and break into the team, he still has plenty to prove but he nonetheless remains a valuable squad option.

Does Ajeti deserve more chances in Kyogo's absence?



Between him and other options, Celtic remain blessed with differing options up front and Ange Postecoglou is left with a positive headache as a result.

Celtic could be far less fortunate, and Ajeti’s impressive brace is food for thought for the club’s new boss.
