  • Kristoffer Ajer earns first senior call-up for Norway

    Kristoffer Ajer earns first senior call-up for Norway

  • FRESH from starring in Celtic’s dramatic Glasgow derby victory at Ibrox, Kristoffer Ajer has earned his first senior call-up for Norway.

    The 19-year-old has been named in Lars Lagerback’s squad for their friendlies against Australia and Albania later this month after impressing for the Scottish champions.

    Since breaking into the team in late December, the defender has cemented his place in Brendan Rodgers’ starting XI with a series of stellar showings, most recently on Sunday as the Hoops beat their city rivals with 10 men to storm nine points clear at the top of the table.

    Meanwhile, four Celtic players have been named in the Scotland Under-21 squad. Ross Doohan, Anthony Ralston, Calvin Miller and Lewis Morgan, who is spending the rest of the season on loan at St Mirren, have all been called up by head coach Scott Gemmill for the UEFA European Championship qualifier against Andorra.
