Tierney in line for long-awaited Celtic return

Tierney in line for long-awaited Celtic return Kieran Tierney could feature against Motherwell on Sunday, after being named in Celtic’s provisional squad for the fixture. Absent since December after sustaining a hip injury, the Hoops’ fan favourite return to action will act as a welcome piece of good news for a group still afflicted by Thursday’s Europa League exit in Valencia. The left-back last appeared in a famous green and white jersey for his side’s 2-1 defeat against Salzburg on December 13, and has been severely missed on the perimeter of Brendan Rodgers’ back four. The Daily Record have revealed the team that Rodgers is looking at for the clash, which may or may not see Tierney make the starting XI.

Kieran Tierney (born 5 June 1997) is a Scottish footballer who plays for Scottish Premiership side Celtic and the Scotland national team as a left back.

Kieran Tierney has praised Brendan Rodgers for what he achieved at Celtic, amidst speculation that the Northern Irish manager could be ready to bring him along to Leicester City this summer.

Premier League links aren’t another new for the highly-rated 21-year-old, who has been reportedly targeted by the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United before, and he has already put transfer talk to one side.

He told the Daily Record that all his focus is on Celtic, but couldn’t help signing the new Foxes manager’s praises when asked about his influence on not just the Scottish champions, but also Tierney’s career.

What the f*** are you doing? Rodgers stunned by abuse from Celtic fans After Celtic fans sung vile chants about him following his departure, Brendan Rodgers said: "Bloody hell, I'm one of you!" Rodgers stepped down as Celtic boss this week to succeed Claude Puel at the King Power Stadium, having won every domestic trophy available during a stint in Scotland that began in May 2016. The decision outraged sections of the Scottish champions' support and a banner was unveiled at Celtic's subsequent fixture against Hearts that read: "You traded immortality for mediocrity. Never a Celt. Always a fraud.

“We thank him for all he has done as he has helped me become a much better player and professional. The standards he set changed football up here. What we achieved over the time he was here was crazy but there is no point in dwelling on the past. We need to look forward.”

The hot conversation surrounding whether Ben Chilwell will be at Leicester next season will only heighten talk linking Tierney with a move to the Premier League, with Manchester City reported suitors of the £50million-rated left-back.

Rodgers’ first transfer window as Leicester manager will be an interesting one in itself, but if he decides to come in for any of his old stars it’s highly doubtful Celtic will let them go without a fight.

Especially someone of Tierney’s current quality and potential.

Tierney returns home after being ruled out of San Marino clash.
Celtic defender Kieran Tierney has returned home from international duty early having been ruled out of Scotland’s game against San Marino. Sky Sports report that the defender had been ruled out of the game as a result of his groin problem. There had been some concerns over the player’s fitness after he was initially ruled out of just the game against Kazakhstan, despite the fact he travelled to Nursultan. There had been something of an injury crisis developing at left-back, with Liverpool’s Andrew Robertson also missing the game, but he will now feature during the meeting with San Marino and is due to meet up with the squad on Friday.
