The highest of the two offers was £2million, which falls short of the teenager’s valuation and as such, both bids were rejected. The Steelmen have reportedly set an asking price of £3million for the midfielder who came through their academy system.

Celtic reject second Arsenal bid for Kieran Tierney.
Celtic have rejected a second bid from Arsenal, worth up to £25m, for full-back Kieran Tierney, according to a report from Football Scotland. The Gunners made a bid of £17.5m up front with another £7.5m in potential add-ons, but Celtic have rejected the offer as they think that some of the clauses are unlikely to be met. Football Scotland report that some of the clauses related to the Champions League and with Arsenal failing to qualify for the competition for a second straight season, officials from the Scottish champions don’t think the proposed clauses are realistically going to be met any time soon.
