Lol who?

82 potential on FIFA 16 career mode - a potential rating than any of our full backs. He's also won SPFL young player of the year award tonight.

That's as far as my knowledge about him goes.

Scottsmen where art thou? We need intel.

He's had an incredible breakthrough season and has been one of Celtic's best players. Very old-school defender who's good in the tackle and also surprisingly adept at making intelligent crosses and pull-backs when he gets into attacking positions.

Still, far too early to say whether or not he could become a regular in the Premier League at this early stage of his career. Worth tracking though.

↑ That's a very good ball in, indeed.

Not sure about the credibility of the link though; wins SPFLYPOTY, gets linked with Arsenal within hours.

It's the Daily Star. Not sure why it's even posted because it's obviously bullshit.

He only broke through this year... far too soon. Very good with the ball but I'd just like to make sure we all know how bad the standard is up here... a lot of teams would fit in comfortably in league 2.

Arsenal are set to make a £10 million bid for Celtic's teenage full-back Kieran Tierney after a series of glowing reports from chief scout Steve Rowley.

Absolute joke that a full back with one season experience in a weak league is being valued at 10 mil just because he's British. Have we not learnt from the chambers and Ox fiascos?

It's a figure pulled out of the arse of whoever wrote that article. It doesn't mean anything.

I don't think Tierney would be in any rush to leave anyway - he's a local lad who's absolutely adored by the fans, and it's likely to be in his self interest to continue at this level for a couple of years at least so he can develop properly. I can see him making the step up to the Premier League one day though.

Celtic will have a struggle on their hands to keep hold of left-back Kieran Tierney, with Bayern Munich having joined Arsenal in the race to sign the 19-year-old Scotland international.

Tottenham have edged ahead of Arsenal and Manchester United in the battle to sign Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney, according to ESPN.

Tierney signed a new six-year contract with Celtic on Monday, but he remains a target for English Premier League clubs and has been regularly linked with Arsenal and United.

However, Spurs watched him in both of Celtic’s Champions League ties with Bayern Munich recently and view Tierney as a potential replacement for Danny Rose, who has been strongly tipped to join United.
