The defender was sent out on loan in Rodgers' first season but has now become a key figure for his manager.

French duo Moussa 
Dembele and Odsonne Edouard are grabbing the headlines in Brendan Rodgers’ newly-shaped Celtic.

But the Hoops gaffer expects 
Norwegian youngster Kristoffer Ajer to be a key figure in his team’s evolution this season.

It looks like the Treble winners will deploy a 3-5-2 system that allows 
Rodgers to play Dembele and Edouard together up front.

Even this early in the campaign it looks like an exciting prospect for Celtic fans with the front pair bang in form.

But the formation also means that Rodgers needs a ball-playing centre-back who can step out as the spare man to initiate attacks.

And in 20-year-old Ajer he feels he’s got one of the most prodigious talents around. The youngster was superb for Celtic in their Champions League 
qualifying win over Aleshkert.

And with Rodgers now short on defenders, after Jozo Simunovic’s red...

Kieran Tierney has shrugged off the attention from the big guns down south as he’s only targeting firing Celtic to the double treble.

The Hoops star is being watched by a raft of top sides in the English Premier League with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho topping the list of admirers.

Old Trafford scouts have set up camp at Parkhead this season to keep tabs on the 20-year-old and were in the Hampden stands as Brendan Rodgers’s men hammered Rangers on Sunday but Tierney has constantly insisted his heart is set on home.

The Scotland ace penned a bumper new six-year deal earlier in the season and is determined to keep racking up the silverware.

Scott Sinclair: I'm happy at Celtic and I'm here to stay

FORGET the back-page rumours - everything is still wonderful, beautiful and magical in Paradise for Scott Sinclair. The Englishman was bemused to read suggestions in the press that he wasn’t happy at Celtic after returning to Glasgow from a short break with his family during the international week.

The truth is simple: Sinclair loves the club, and he and his young family are happy and settled in Scotland. Leave? Out of the question. He wants to be here for 10 –in-a-row!

And speaking exclusively to the matchday programme for this weekend’s game against Ross County, Sinclair was keen to set the record straight and reassure the Hoops faithful his full focus is on hitting top gear again and finishing the season with a flourish.

“It was just speculation and maybe because I didn’t play...
