Oliver Burke Says Celtic Team-Mate Kristoffer Ajer Could Beat Him In A Straight Race

Oliver Burke has revealed the Celtic player who could beat him in a straight race – and it’s not who you would expect.

Burke’s lightening pace has been noticeable since his January move to Parkhead.

The 21-year-old’s quickness has caused opposition defenders problems in the Premiership.

However, he claims there’s one man who would give him a run for his money – and it’s not who you’d expect.

Burke insists centre-back Kristoffer Ajer would come close in a straight race.

With players such as Scott Sinclair, Cristian Gamboa and Timo Weah at the club, it’s surprising to see Ajer rated Burke’s closest contest.

Who else do you think could give the Scotland international a race?
