'I'll have Beyonce', 'Comedians' - Celtic fans in hysterics at Sky Sports transfer reveal
Celtic fans have been left in hysterics after Sky Sports claimed that Kieran Tierney is Bournemouth’s top transfer target ahead of the summer window.
The broadcaster claim on their website that the Cherries are keen on recruiting a new left back before next season and view the Bhoys’ 20-year-old as their number one choice after his impressive season with the Scottish champions, who could pick up a second successive treble this season.

With 53 appearances across all competitions this season, including in the Champions League and Europa League, Tierney is said to have been attracting the attention of big names in world football, including Tottenham and Manchester United, who may try prise the young star from Brendan Rodgers’ grip.
However, Tierney has a contract running until 2023, having put pen to paper on a six year deal back in October 2017, meaning anyone, including Bournemouth, face a fight to get their hands on him.
The Sky Sports report went down like a lead balloon with the Parkhead faithful, who immediately turned to Twitter to mock the suggestion Tierney would be leaving the Hoops for a mid-table side in England.

Ain’t that cute the little EPL clubs with all their money think they can just make an offer and our players will come running. If KT ever leaves us it’ll be to a lot bigger club that bloody Bournemouth.
