Rangers fans slaughter ex-Celtic star Kris Ajer for "cheek" of latest comments

Not even Kris Ajer levels of delusion can take away from the fact Rangers secured 55 last season whilst Celtic waved goodbye to Terry Munro once and for all.

The Parkhead club’s Holy Grail fell by the wayside as Rangers went the domestic league season unbeaten and relentlessly dominated their Old Firm rivals, also going unbeaten against them in all competitions.

Not only that, but the Gers finished 25 points clear in Celtic’s season of seasons and thoroughly embarrassed a team of apparent world-beaters who could barely get out of a European group stage.

Amongst them was the admittedly talented no-look pass extraordinaire Kris Ajer who – in his haste to exit Parkhead – appears to have forgotten just how obliterated Celtic got last season.

Moving to Brentford for a reported £13.5m in the summer [Daily Mail], it was no secret that the Norwegian wanted out of Parkhead.

But get a load of these comments from the 21-year-old centre-half, who claims that he was never challenged in Scotland despite being humiliatingly ripped apart last season.

“I think it is natural [to develop bad habits] when you play a little too many matches at a level that is not high enough,” said Ajer [VG]

“I have incredible respect for the Scottish league, there are many great teams there, but there were a little too many matches where I was not challenged enough.

“I will definitely be in the Premier League, so I probably think it is not possible to complain about Premier League.”

It’s fair enough – the Premier League is certainly a higher standard than the Scottish Premiership – but there’s more than a hint of arrogance surrounding the comments.

Ajer – for all his ball-carrying abilities – is not without some immense flaws and he was routinely exploited by Rangers last season.

Not only that, but the Norwegian was the main centre-back in a defence which shipped an unholy number of set-piece goals.

Rangers fans have been quick to shoot the big defender down and remind him just how challenging Ajer and his teammates found last season in Scotland:

Whilst Ajer’s comments have certainly stoked a reaction, Rangers fans might want to keep one eye on his progress in the Premier League.

After all, his success could help back up Rangers’ stubborn transfer stance as the club holds firm when it comes to selling their biggest assets.
