Tottenham fans have been raving about Celtic’s Kieran Tierney on social media after the Hoops reportedly slapped a £30million price-tag on the left-back, amidst interest from afar.

The 20-year-old defender has shone again this season for the Scottish champions following on from another successful campaign in 2016/17, when he really stood out from the crowd.

Tierney’s exciting and mesmerising runs down the Celtic left-flank have become a key attacking option for Brendan Rodgers’ all-conquering side.

So much so, that the youngster has attracted interest not only from Spurs but Manchester United and Atletico Madrid too.

The defender only signed a new deal to remain in the Scottish Premiership in October of last year which runs until 2023 and with Ben Davies coming into the Spurs side, and going from strength to strength under Mauricio Pochettino, you’d have to wonder where Tierney would fit into the XI.

With Danny Rose looking a likely exit from the North Londoners this summer, there is a need for back-up in the position but whether the young Scot would swap a first-team slot at the Hoops for a lesser role in the Premier League is questionable.

One thing is certain though, and that is if Spurs do swoop for the Celtic star, he already has a host of admirers in the capital.

Here is a selection of Twitter reactions on social media from supporters of the Lillywhites reacting to the news:
