Celtic fans were mightily impressed on Twitter with their young left-back Kieran Tierney after he starred for Scotland against Slovakia on Tuesday night.
Tierney was one of Scotland’s only shining lights away in Slovakia, as Gordon Strachan’s men were convincingly beaten 3-0 by their European opponents.
The 19-year-old, who is reportedly being courted by Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Manchester City, offered an attacking outlet on the left flank while remaining defensively sound in keeping out Slovakia right winger Michal Duris.
Tierney was chosen ahead of Rangers captain Lee Wallace, as Gordon Strachan’s side move to fourth place in Group F after drawing against Lithuania earlier this month. The Scots are now four points adrift of leaders England, and face the Three Lions next.
Fans were impressed with their academy product on Twitter, with many claiming that he could be Scotland star for many years to come.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Tierney has been a mainstay in the Celtic starting 11 following Brendan Rodgers’ move to Glasgow earlier this summer, already making 16 appearances in all competitions.
The youngster starred in last month’s enthralling 3-3 draw against Pep Guardiola’s City, supplying the cross for French wonderkid Moussa Dembele to acrobatically finish into the corner of the net.
