Celtic’s Kieran Tierney has been talking to the press after what has been a good few weeks for the player.
He discussed playing for Scotland in an unfamiliar right-back role, as reported by Celtic’s official twitter account.
Tierney said, ”Wherever I’m told to play, I’ll try my best. Left-back, centre-back or right-back, I don’t really mind.
”Right-back was hard, especially when your strong foot is your left, but I’m happy playing anywhere.”

When Gordon Strachan was Scotland boss Tierney usually played as a right-back, with Liverpool’s Andy Robertson the preferred left-back.
Tierney captained Scotland against the Netherlands last week, where he played in a centre-back role by interim manager Malky Mackay.
The Celtic left-back has enjoyed a meteoric rise since he was given his Celtic debut by former boss Ronny Deila in 2015.
He has been first choice left-back in the last two seasons, being named young player of the year in both seasons.
Tierney was also part of the first Celtic side to win a treble since 2017 and the first to go through an entire league season unbeaten since the 1890s.
He also started Celtic’s last league game, a 4-0 win against St Johnstone which saw the Hoops set a new British domestic record of 63 games unbeaten.
The Bhoys return to league action this Saturday against Ross County.
