Ajer says ‘It’s been a really good week’ at Celtic under Neil Lennon

Celtic’s Kristoffer Ajer says ‘It’s been a really good week’ at the club since Neil Lennon took over as caretaker boss.

Lennon, who previously managed Celtic between 2010-2014, replaced Brendan Rodgers who last week departed for Leicester City and has since overseen wins at Hearts and Hibernian.

Ajer was full of praise for the impact of Lennon since his return to Celtic Park, hailing the ‘togetherness’ in the dressing room following Rodgers shock exit.

“It’s been a really good week,” Ajer told the official Celtic website. “The gaffer’s come in and had a really good talk with all the players and told us about what he wants from us going forward. He’s been really good and we’ve seen that already with the two results in Edinburgh last week.

“John Kennedy has taken a lot of the training sessions but the gaffer has been here, putting a mark on how he wants it to be. The whole squad has really understood that everyone has their chance to prove themselves in training, and the level in training has been really good over the past week.

“The togetherness in the dressing-room has been really good, and our captain, Scott Brown, has been a real leader for us and the whole feeling of the club is that we’re just looking forward now.”
