Celtic fans are excited about the Kristoffer Ajer and Jozo Simunovic central defensive partnership after they kept another clean sheet at home to Kilmarnock on Saturday.

An ambitious Killie side really took the game to the Hoops throughout yesterday’s 90 minutes, with the duo called into action on a number of occasions.

Both were again given the responsibility of carrying the ball out of defence too, with Simunovic providing a key goal threat at the other end, eventually netting a towering header that will go down in Hoops folklore as a well-timed Billy McNeill tribute.

Much has been made of Celtic’s problems in front of goal under Neil Lennon but our defensive form has been excellent. We’ve kept eight clean sheets of his ten matches so far, conceding just two goals in total. It’s a magnificent record, with Ajer and Simunovic playing a big role in it.

Many now think it could be a viable partnership heading into next season…

Is the Simunovic and Ajer partnership one that can be first-choice next season? Share your thoughts in the comments below…
