Kristoffer Ajer urges Celtic focus in triple treble pursuit

Kristoffer Ajer expects Celtic to be relentless in their pursuit of a historic triple treble this season.

The Hoops’ 3-0 win over on Sunday set up a meeting with Hearts in the William Hill Scottish Cup final next month.

With an 11-point lead over Old Firm rivals Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premiership, an eighth successive title looks to be secured as well.

“When you play for Celtic everyone wants to beat you,” Ajer told reporters. “We know that Hibs will make it really difficult for us next week.

“We have to be on top of our game, because there is a lot of work to do before the end of the season.

“I feel I am on the right way with my development,” the Norwegian added.

“The gaffer and the staff have helped me a lot, so I just want to keep performing and helping the team as much as possible.”

Celtic return to domestic action on April 21, where they face Hibernian at Easter Road.
