Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney has admitted that at times even he can’t believe how well his career has gone so far.
The 20-year-old was a huge part of Brendan Rodgers’ side which completed a domestic treble and set a British record of 69 matches without defeat.
He has already captained both the Hoops and Scotland and the sky appears to be the limit for the youngster, a fact that he finds it difficult at times to come to terms with.
This was recently shown when he made an appearance at a Celtic-themed pub in Spain during the winter break and was mobbed by supporters wanting autographs and photos.
“It was a Celtic pub. They asked me to pop in and it was good to see the fans as well” he said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“There are moments I pinch myself. For people to come and see you when they’re on their holidays, it’s crazy. There’s maybe 100 or so people there to see me with just around an hour’s notice.”
Tierney and the rest of his team-mates are well positioned to have another memorable season, with the defence of the domestic treble and European football to look forward to.
They have retained the Betfred Cup and hold an eight point lead over closest challengers Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership table, and an 11 point lead over their bitter rivals Rangers.
They return to domestic action on the 20th of January, beginning the defence of the Scottish Cup against Brechin, then face Zenit in the Europa League last 32 in February.
