Brendan Rodgers has been talking to the press ahead of Celtic’s game against Ross County on Saturday.
One of the topics of conversation has been Kieran Tierney, the Celtic left-back who today was named the Scottish Premiership Player of the Month for October.
The Celtic boss was full of praise for the player, who recently captained Scotland in their friendly against the Netherlands.
“He’s low maintenance… and a joy to manage’ said the Celtic boss, as reported by Clyde Superscoreboard.

Rodgers recently named Tierney as Celtic captain for the league game against Kilmarnock, and he is seen as the natural long-term replacement for current captain Scott Brown.
Tierney has gone from strength to strength after making his Celtic debut in 2015.
He is a regular for both the Hoops and Scotland, despite playing at right-back for the national side, which isn’t his normal position.
Tierney was a key man as part of the Celtic side which won their first domestic treble since 2001 last season.
He was named Scottish young player of the year in the process, the second time in a year that he’s won that award.
Tierney and Celtic return to league business this weekend with a match against Ross County, followed by the Champions League trip to Paris to play PSG.
Tierney will be hoping to build on his excellent performance in Celtic’s last Champions League game against Bayern Munich.
