Fans react on Twitter to Kieran Tierney display for Scotland at right-back

By Alex Stevens

Kieran Tierney played in the unfamiliar position of right-back for Scotland in their 1-0 win over Slovenia on Sunday evening – and fans took to Twitter to hail his display.

National team manager Gordon Strachan deployed the Celtic left-back on the opposite flank in order to accommodate both him and Hull’s Andrew Robertson in the team.

It was a move that paid dividends as Scotland kept their slim hopes of World Cup qualification alive with the Group F win at Hampden Park.

Strachan had described this match as a must-win, and Scotland are now fourth in Group F, two points behind Slovakia in second.

Tierney, 19, demonstrated his calibre with an impressive performance on what was only his third international appearance.

Fans took to social media to hail him for being a rare talent, with some amusingly describing him as the two best full-backs in Scotland due to his versatility.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Isle of Man-born Tierney has been a key member of the Celtic team that are unbeaten in domestic competition this season.

Despite missing a chunk of the campaign with an ankle injury, the teenager has made 31 appearances in all competitions and demonstrated his calibre as an attacking full-back with an impressive 12 assists as well as a single goal.

Tierney has made 66 appearances in total for Celtic, supplying 20 assists. He is contracted to the club until the summer of 2021.

Celtic are on course for a domestic treble after already winning the Scottish League Cup and set to clinch the Scottish Premiership title immediately after the international break.
