Former Celtic star Kieran Tierney reveals that he misses “Everything” about playing for the Hoops and leaving the Scottish champions was the hardest thing he has ever done.

Tierney completed a move to Arsenal last summer which saw Celtic receive a staggering £25 million for the defender.

The Scottish defender hasn’t had much luck with his new club as injuries have plagued Tierney all season.

There has been a trend on social media since lockdown that players would hold a Q&A and this time it was Tierney’s turn. (source)

“I miss everything about Celtic and I always will.

“I am very grateful for every second I spent playing for the club.

“I would say leaving Celtic was the hardest decision I’d ever had to make.

“I knew I would always miss Celtic no matter what happens in life.

“But the chance to play for Arsenal was a challenge that when I heard of it, I was just looking forward to it.”


Opinion Time

The sale of Tierney to the Gunners last summer broke the hearts of most Celtic fans worldwide, but in reality Arsenal aren’t the team they once were but KT felt it was the right move for him. (source)

Its just a shame that his season hasn’t been a positive one, on the plus side when Tierney has got a chance to play, the defender has impressed the Gunners with his attacking style and his rare ability as a defender at creating so many chances for his squad.
