NEW BHOY’S INJURY SCARE

0

CELTIC were given a scare when new signing Kristoffer Ajer was carried off with a knee injury at the start of the Norwegian season.

The beanpole 17-year-old midfielder, who agreed a £750,000 move from IK Start in the January transfer window, will arrive at the SPFL champions in the summer.

However, he limped off after just 34 minutes of his team’s 1-1 draw with Lillestrom and Ajer is now awaiting tests to see if his knee has suffered serious damage.

Former Norway manager Egil Olsen was impressed by the talented holding midfielder before he was forced to go off.

Olsen said: “Kristoffer’s injury is bad news for Start because he was their best player until then.

“They were far better when he was on and his substitution seemed to affect them.”
