Celtic have a very good squad for the future there no doubt about that, maybe now is the time for Lennon to think about next season a little more and start playing Kristoffer Ajer at his natural role in the midfield.
Celtic fans all over the world thought that Tierney was going to be the next team captain when Brown takes a step back into coaching, obviously that’s not going to happen now that the left back moved to Arsenal, but for me and especially in the last twelve months, Ajer has come on leaps and bounds and has those leadership qualities that you rarely find in a young player.
Eventually Brown would need to take a step back and play less games for the good of the team, hes had a fantastic career in the Hoops and broke numerous records cementing his name in the history books, but every player has an expiry date and whenever that happens we need his replacement already prepared to slot in.
Lennon already has that player in the team and its Ajer, the big Norwegian currently plays in defence and does a fantastic job but his most natural role is in the midfield, out of 180 games Ajer has played best part of 60 in the midfield hes even played centre forward a few times (full career).
When January comes Celtic should allow Lennon to sign another two defenders and use Ajer more in the Midfield, allow Brown rest times and prepare for next year, by no means do we mean that Brown isn’t good enough we just need to prepare as Ajer could be fantastic going forward as we have seen from him when he plays at right back, a player whos very good on the ball and very versatile.
