By John Reid
Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney has spoken of his disappointment at Celtic’s 2-1 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.
The 20-year-old was once more a standout player as Celtic went toe-to-toe with the German Champions.
It took a Javi Martinez header to win the game for the Bundesliga leaders, after Callum McGregor cancelled out Kingsley Coman’s opening goal.
Despite the defeat, Tierney could still take positives from the game.
Speaking to STV Sport, he said “We’re so unlucky. The boys put everything into that game and the fans appreciated it.

The fans were great for us tonight and we just fell short.”
Celtic still have the prospect of playing European football after Christmas.
The Bhoys currently sit three points ahead of Anderlecht in the battle for the Europa League place.
Tierney has once again been linked with a move away from Celtic despite signing a new contract just this week.
According to reports, the trio of Spurs, Manchester United and Arsenal are all interested in signing the player, with Spurs currently in the driving seat.
Celtic may well face a choice in the summer about Tierney’s future if a big money bid comes in.
The Bhoys are next in action this weekend, as they face St Johnstone knowing that if they avoid defeat they break the 100 year record of 62 unbeaten domestic games.
