Ajer: Glas­gow was like be­ing in a movie

The Herald - Herald Sport - - LADBROKES PREMIERSHIP -

KRISTOF­FER Ajer ad­mits he felt like a movie star in Glas­gow af­ter com­plet­ing his move to Celtic on Wed­nes­day.

The 17-year-old mid­fielder jet­ted in from Nor­way to sign a four-year deal with Ronny Deila’s side.

Ajer will link up with the reign­ing Scot­tish cham­pi­ons in June af­ter play­ing the first four months of the Tip­peli­gaen with cur­rent club IK Start.

The teenager ad­mits he was taken aback by the level of in­ter­est in him dur­ing his whirl­wind trip to Scot­land.

Ajer, who re­joined his Start team­mates on their La Manga pre-sea­son train­ing camp on Thurs­day, said: “Foot­ball means ev­ery­thing in Scot­land. There were peo­ple who wanted to take pic­tures in the street. It was like be­ing in a movie for a few days there.

“Now I’m back with Start and I’ll have my feet firmly on the ground. I’m not a Celtic player un­til June 10 and I’m think­ing only of Start.”
