Former Celtic captain Tom Boyd believes that Champions League finalist Andy Robertson would love to be in Kieran Tierney’s position and picking up medals galore at Celtic Park.
The Anfield defender, who was released by the Hoops as a youngster, had a superb season for Jurgen Klopp’s men as they went on a tear through Europe.
But Boyd believes that Robertson would rather win trophies than plaudits, like his fellow left-back and Hoops star man Tierney has.
“What’s Andy won? Nothing. That is the balance for players” Boyd said, as quoted by the Herald.
Boyd did go on to admit though that Tierney would like to eventually make his mark on the Champions League.
“Kieran would love to do better in the Champions League with Celtic and that’s a tough ask.
“But as for everything else…Andy is a fantastic player but he’d love to be in Kieran’s position picking up a Double Treble and all those trophies.”
Football Insider verdict
It seems that Robertson and Kierney will always be fated to be compared to each other. Two of the best players Scotland has produced in many years, and both are Celtic fans and left-backs. As for Boyd’s comments, there is no doubt that Robertson would have loved to have made it with the Hoops. These things happen in football though, and he has gone on to have a great career so far. The same is true with his comments about Tierney, who must have watched his Scottish international team-mate with slight jealousy. The Hoops will probably never be able to compete at the level in Europe that Liverpool have in the season just gone. No doubt as both players go on to have long and successful careers, the debate will continue on about which on the two is the better player. All that matters though is that the pair are having a successful career and long may that continue.
