Brentford signing Ajer tribute to Celtic coach Kennedy

Brentford signing Kris Ajer has paid tribute to former club Celtic.

Ajer singled out Celtic assistant manager John Kennedy for praise as he said farewell to Hoops fans following his move to Brentford.

Ajer wrote on his Instagram account: “Five years ago I travelled to Glasgow not knowing what to expect. The stories I got told seemed incredible, but the very first time I walked out at Celtic Park I truly understood how big a club Celtic really is.

“'Football without fans is nothing', and I want to thank every supporter that has contributed to making my time at Celtic so special.

“I also want to thank the managers that have developed me as a player, back room staff that has helped me through ups and downs, and also my teammates that have become great friends that will last a lifetime.

“A special mention also to John Kennedy, the most important person for me during my time at Celtic. Without him, we would never win the quadruple treble."
