Report details whether Celtic ace Tierney will be available for Scotland v England

By Derek Smithson

Celtic defender Kieran Tierney will be fit for Scotland to face England in a World Cup qualifier, according to a report.

The Daily Record claim that the 19-year-old has “declared himself fit” for his country, despite a picking up a jaw injury in the Scottish Cup final on Saturday.

It is understood that Tierney has told Scotland manager Gordon Strachan that he wants to be kept in the squad ahead of the match against England on 10 June.

The left-back was caught by the elbow of Aberdeen forward Jayden Stockley in Celtic’s 2-1 victory in the cup final and appeared to have sustained a serious injury blow.

He was forced off the pitch with a suspected broken jaw and was rushed to hospital, but still made it out after the game to celebrate the club’s domestic treble.

Tierney looks like recovering remarkably quickly and could be in contention for a starting role for Scotland’s important qualifying game with rivals England.

The full-back has three senior caps already for his country and is expected to play a major role in future years.

He has also been in great form for Scottish champions Celtic this season, supplying an impressive 12 assists in 40 appearances.
