Kieran Tierney Set To Return Against Hamilton/Rodgers Gives Update On Celtic Duo
Kieran Tierney has declared himself ready to play for Celtic at Hamilton on Saturday after playing it safe and sitting out Scotland’s crucial Nations League double header against Albania and Israel.
Tierney should be back and ready to face Hamilton and we are all very happy about it, Celtic pulled Tierney out of the Scotland pool as they don’t want to risk him getting a serious injury.
“For me, I said I was fine, I will carry on, but they said they can’t take risks like that, so ultimately they pulled me out and sent me for a scan. After that I had to come in for rehab for a couple of days.
“I’ve been training the last couple of days and it’s getting better. We know what the problem is, so it’s just managing it now.”
Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers also took time out of his duties to comment on Scott Brown and Leigh Griffiths.
“Browny’s back in training and Leigh is back in, which is very good news as well, he looks fit and strong and working hard.”
On whether the pair will be in the squad to face Hamilton, Rodgers said: “We’ll assess that on Friday, it might be too early for that.”
