Celtic defender Kieran Tierney has provided an important update regarding his future with the club.
The highly-talented Scotland left-back has been linked with a move to the Premier League for a while now but he’s revealed that he wouldn’t mind committing his future with the club for the rest of his career.
However, Spanish giants and Europa League winners Atletico Madrid are the latest to be linked with a move for the left-back with reports claiming the Rojiblancos will send their scout to watch the full-back performances when Celtic play Motherwell in the Scottish Cup final.
“I’ve never thought about elsewhere yet, in my life. It’s just been Celtic since the age of seven. I’ve never even been on trial with another team. I was at my local boys’ club then moved to Celtic at seven. Can I see myself being here all my career? Yes, I can. But, you never know in football.”
Ofcourse fans ought to be excited with Tierney’s latest admission. The defender is one of the best players at the club and losing him to strengthen an European side would be a massive blow for Celtic.
The 20-year-old signed a six-year contract extension to his contract earlier in the just concluded season and the club will be looking to fend-off interest on him for as long as possible.
Tierney has also been an integral part of Bhoys’ success this season. His performances have won him both the PFA Scotland and Scottish Football Writers’ award for an unprecedented three consecutive seasons now.
