Celtic fans are losing patience with defenders Kristoffer Ajer and Jack Hendry after a disappointing draw at home to AEK Athens on Wednesday night.

The Hoops have it all to do in Greece next week after the 1-1 draw, failing to win despite Wednesday’s visitors going down to ten men early in the second half.

The Greeks’ goal means that the Hoops have to score in the second leg and produce the kind of defensive performance that is usually absent in away European fixtures.

Again it was the defence at the heart of fans’ concerns last night, with many struggling to comprehend why Brendan Rodgers is persisting with Jack Hendry and Kristoffer Ajer as the team’s main defensive combination.

Many deem the former not good enough and the latter not quite experienced enough to shine in matches of such importance.

It’s clear that the Hoops boss sees the duo as the future of the Celtic defence, but more and more fans seem less convinced.

These supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all after last night’s result…

Do you think Celtic need defensive improvements before the end of August? Let us know in the comments…

  • Agree with all above we have done nothing in the transfer market and defo Europa League (maybe) because if we get a half decent side there as well we’re out of that too, Rodgers has lost interest we couldn’t even buy John McGinn for god sake! Hate to say but rangers could be a problem for us as well this season also???? our defence is murder. Sorry guys but no champions league this season.

  • Bredan is made the escape goat again it’s history repeating itself they won’t give him the funds to improve his defence they did the same to Martin oNeill Neil Lenon that’s why they left no ambition take all the transfer money and buy nobody loan players are they kidding he has broke records in Scotland I can see him leaving soon we are getting laughed at we are a rich club but we will self destruct they are too young to be thrown in a the deep end no one can ask them with no experience we got hump ed in Europe it’s money you have to buy quality not bring back a finished left back why don’t we bring back Charlie mulgrew it’s a joke bredan will walk it’s on the cards and the money pinching board is too blame yet again

  • Fire Peter and promote Brendan and give him complete control over all football operations. I have been a fan for over 60 years and all the boards have been reluctant to spend money and they HAVE HURT the team. The McGinn deal is a travesty. An outstanding player with tremendous character and Peter failed miserably to get the deal done.
