Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he believes Kieran Tierney is among the best full-backs in Britain because he doesn’t “do stupid things” and that he is in training every day “like a dog”.
In an interview with The Guardian, the Hoops boss spoke highly of the young defender and shared what he thought caused the player to be successful.
“He’s got an incredible determination, an old-school determination,” said Rodgers.
“He lives his life right, he doesn’t drink or do stupid things, he’s in every day training like a dog.”
The defender has made 29 appearances across all competitions for the Bhoys this season and even managed to score a goal against Aberdeen.
Tierney’s form saw him earn a new contract with the club in October, one they sees him stay with Celtic until 2023.
Despite only being 20-years-old, the defender has already won two Scottish championship and two Scottish League Cups.
The defender is likely to add further trophies to his cabinet this season, as Celtic sit atop of the Scottish Premiership seven points clear of both Rangers and Aberdeen.
The Hoops are next in action on Tuesday when they play their final Champions League game of the season against Anderlecht.
The Bhoys are aiming to avoid a 4-0 defeat against Anderlecht, which would see them qualify for the Europa League.
