The Light Blues are currently 19 points ahead of their rivals at the top of the

Scottish Premiership

table as they won their Saturday match at Ibrox.


’s objective to win their tenth consecutive league trophies is now in serious jeopardy as Steven Gerrard’s men seems to be in their best form. However,

Kristoffer Ajer

believes that his side is able to use their three games at hand to close the gap with



 “The three league games in hand is obviously good for us.

“We know that we have to take nine points in those three games but we also know that we have to win pretty much all the games going forward.

“We are excited for the challenge and really looking forward to it.

“We are disappointed about the (Rangers) defeat.

“We are a club who are expected to win every single game and the players  expect it as well.

“We are hugely disappointed but we just have to keep performing, and try to perform better in the second half of the season.”

Asked about the high-quality performances of his teammates Ismaila Soro and David Turnbull, Ajer responded:

“They have been great. They have been training really well since they came in. They have been developing really well.

“Soro’s English is spot on now, he is a  great guy around the dressing room and David has come in, it is easy for him, he’s a Scottish guy who knows almost all the guys from the national  team.

“He is a great lad as well and to see them perform has been a delight.”
