By Alex Stevens
Kieran Tierney is likely to be the next big-name departure from Celtic, according to a report.
The Herald claim the left-back is expected to follow the likes of Fraser Forster, Victor Wanyama and Virgil van Dijk from Parkhead to the Premier League.
It is said that Tierney, 19, will be the next mega-money exit, and not his much-talked about striker teammate Moussa Dembele, after showing such huge promise since establishing himself in the Celtic team in the last two seasons.
The Herald report that Arsenal, Manchester United and Sunderland are among the clubs keeping close tabs on the two-times Scotland international ahead of a possible summer swoop.
Isle of Man-born Tierney has been a key member of the Celtic team that are unbeaten in domestic competition this season.

Despite missing a chunk of the campaign with an ankle injury, the teenager has made 31 appearances in all competitions and demonstrated his calibre as an attacking full-back with an impressive 12 assists as well as a single goal.
