Collymore: Celtic player will have sent PL scouts into a frenzy with his display v England
By Danny Wright
Stan Collymore believes that Celtic full-back Kieran Tierney would have sent Premier League scouts into a frenzy with his solid performance in Scotland’s 2-2 draw with England on Saturday.
The Hoops player earned his fourth senior international cap as Gordon Strachan’s side dropped two points in final stages of the Hampden Park clash, leaving qualification to the 2018 World Cup in Russia hanging in the balance.
Tierney, 20, played all 90 minutes of the Auld Enemy encounter and clearly impressed Collymore, who took to his personal Twitter account on Saturday night to hail the left-back.
“Thought Tierney was excellent, and although it was a low quality affair, one or two scouts will be sending glowing reports down south,” said the former England international.

Tierney has been in phenomenal form for Celtic this season as he helped Brendan Rodgers’ side win the domestic treble without a single defeat.

Such top displays has seen him begin to attract attention from south of the border, with the Daily Mail reporting that Manchester United and Chelsea are both interested in the Hoops youngster, who is said to be valued at £17million.
Tierney made 40 appearances across all competitions for the Bhoys during the 2016/17 campaign despite suffering a major setback in October when he was ruled out for three months with a ruptured cruciate ligament in his knee.
He came back after the winter break and kept up his top performances and in total scored two goals and supplied a stunning 12 assists in both European and Scottish competitions.
