'I'm very happy where I am' - Celtic star responds when asked about chance of Parkhead exit
Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney has claimed that he is happy to stay with the Hoops for as long as he can, and has no plans to leave Parkhead at the moment.
The 20-year-old star was asked by Chris Sutton on BT Sport what he would do if one of Europe’s big clubs attempted to sign him.
But Tierney, a well-known Celtic fan as well as player, claimed to be currently very happy at the club he loves.
“Right now I’m very happy where I am. I’m at a team that’s successful, we’re winning trophies, I’m developing. It’s great to for me and my friends and my whole family, to see me play for the team we all love,” he said in response to the possibility of leaving, as shown on BT Sport Football’s official Twitter account.

Tierney has been a revelation since breaking into the Hoops first-team at the age of 18 under previous manager Ronny Deila.
His performances have went from strength to strength since the appointment of Brendan Rodgers, culminating in Tierney being named the Scottish young player of the year two years running.
He has already won a domestic treble and turned-in some fine performances in the Champions League group stages.
He has also captained both Celtic and Scotland and looks to have a massive future in the game.
Tierney’s most recent game in the Hoops saw the Bhoys recover from going a goal behind to defeat Partick Thistle 2-1 thanks to goals from Scott Sinclair and Leigh Griffiths.
The win took the Bhoys 11 points clear of Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
