FORMER Celtic keeper Packie Bonner has criticised Albian Ajeti for his failure to make an impact in recent weeks.

This comes after Ajeti has failed to score in his last five games. With the score tied at 1-1, the Swiss striker was substituted on in the 72nd minute in an attempt to take all three points.

To Celtic fans delight, Jota was the saviour as he secured the win with a goal just six minutes from time.

Speaking on the show, the Northern Irishman was critical of the former Basel star last week, claiming he is bringing little to nothing to the Celtic frontline. 

Ajeti has been slaughtered for his failure to make an impact in recent weeks with the former Celtic keeper at the forefront, calling him out for his anonymous style of play.

Speaking on BBC Sportsound programme yesterday, He said: “Ajeti, I don’t think he touched the ball for the full period (he was on for). I don’t think he touched the ball once. He had one sort of wrestle with the centre-half and that was it.

“Whether that was down to a lack of movement or whether that’s not Celtic getting balls into areas he can run onto, it’s incredible a striker for Celtic not touching the ball. I would love to see the stat on it.

“Again I looked at Ajeti today up front and he’s just a completely different player than Kyogo. There was a couple of times Kyogo was looking for that little pass, that penetrating pass. There was one where McGregor got (close) that didn’t happen for him.

"The next McGregor tried him again. At least he’s threatening the back of centre-halves, whilst Ajeti is going on and just standing in front of them, making it easier for centre-halves.”
