Former Rangers defender Alan Hutton has blasted the agent of Kristoffer Ajer and claims that Tore Pedersen should just let the Norwegian do his talking on the pitch and refrain from strange comments that will only cause upset.
Hutton has hit out and said that to publicly come out and state his player wants to leave is ludicrous, especially when Ajer himself has never uttered a word about how he feels.
The big defender has been on top form this season and there’s no need for his agent to attempt to cause a stir in the dressing room, as if his agent is trying to alert potential clubs into making Summer bids, which is a bit of a sly thing to do.
It’s a bit of a strange one, I think he’s been excellent for Celtic, he’s done really well this season. Whether the agent’s quotes have been taken out of context or not, I don’t know.
I just think, agents, it just gets in the way, it just causes a problem. They just need to keep all that nonsense out and let the player do the talking on the pitch, which he is. You cause uncertainty in the team, with the manager, with the hierarchy.
You just don’t need it. It puts you off as a player, if that was me, I’d be telling my agent to be quiet. It’s affecting everybody. It’s the one area with agents that I don’t like.Alan Hutton
