Celtic left-back Kieran has been ruled out of action for the Hoops and will miss Sunday’s clash against Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership, according to a report.

The Scottish Sun has revealed that the young defender picked up a calf strain which will also see him ruled out of Scotland’s friendlies, but he should return in time for the visit of Ross County to Parkhead at the end of March.

This season has seen the 20-year-old as one of the first names on Brendan Rodgers starting XI and they will be desperate to see the man who was a transfer target of Manchester United in January, makes a swift return.

Football Insider verdict:

With a semi-final Scottish Cup fixture coming up in the middle of April against Rangers, Brendan Rodgers will hope that this is just a short-term issue and doesn’t end up being a concurrent problem. The 20-year-old has emerged into one of the most talked about left-backs in football for his marauding runs forward and the attacking threat he provides. With four goals to his name this season, Tierney has already racked up a massive 53 performances. While there aren’t many players that can boast a tally like that, there could be a possibility that the young Scot risks burnout.
