Ajer is reportedly “unhappy” at Celtic Park after the club rejected £10million bids from Norwich City and Bayer Leverkusen, and Postecoglou was asked about the 23-year-old defender and Odsonne Edouard at his unveiling yesterday.

“I haven't spoken to either of them yet so, again, I'll wait 'till I speak to both of them," said Postercoglou. "They've both just sort of arrived in the country, as have I, and I'll have discussions with them, and we'll make the best decisions for the football club. That's where my interest lies.

"For me, the individuals within that, I totally understand and respect their own wishes, but I'll always make decisions that are in the best interest of this football club, because that's my responsibility.
