Rodgers talks about future of Celtic star, fans will be delighted

By Harvey Byrne

Manager Brendan Rodgers has told that young star Kieran Tierney loves playing for the club and that he doesn’t sense he wants a move away.

The 20-year-old left-back is considered a bright prospect at Parkhead and this has seen news outlets such as the Mirror link him to clubs like Arsenal and Manchester United.

Celtic fans are of course eager to see the club hold on to such a young talent for as long as possible and many will be keen the see the side build a team around the likes of Tierney.

This means they will no doubt be delighted to hear Rodgers believes Tierney loves playing for Celtic and that he doesn’t think he is looking for a move anytime soon.

“I’m not worried, but I wouldn’t be surprised,” told Rodgers, as quoted by the Scottish Sun when talking about the future of Tierney.

“He loves being here, he knows he’s developing. He’s a sensible boy and he’s developing into a top-class young player.

“I don’t get a sense from him other than he’s in a good place, in a happy place. He genuinely loves playing for the club.

“There are very few players like that nowadays.

“Players love football but they don’t necessarily love the club. Kieran Tierney loves football – and he loves Celtic.

“With so much potential there is always a danger that his head will be turned, but we will cross that bridge when it comes to it.”

Tierney is a product of the Celtic academy, signing for the club aged just seven and is believed to be a boyhood fan of the Glasgow giants.

He had to wait 10 years before making his professional debut for the club in a Premiership match against Dundee in April 2015 and the attacking full-back hasn’t looked back since.

The four-time capped Scotland international has lifted two Premiership titles and one Scottish Cup since making his debut two years a go, while he has also been named the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year twice as well as featuring in the PFA Scotland Team of the Year twice.

In other Celtic news, Chris Sutton has urged Rodgers to axe 25-year-old from future matches.
