Could Kieran Tierney be Celtic’s centre back solution?

How accurate are KT rumours, and could he be our centre back solution?…

The Kieran Tierney rumours have resurfaced in the past few days, and with Brendan Rodgers quipping not to rule it out, could it be more than just talk?

Obviously any deal would be a loan deal due to the Scotland mans price tag and huge salary, but it’s one that would be worth it nevertheless.

KT would only head back for guaranteed first team football and that would be very harsh on Greg Taylor who’s improved greatly in the past year and his performances while not being spectacular have been steady and his commitment is never in question, with the former Killie man never giving less than one hundred percent.

We of course also have Alexandro Bernabei at left back, but with us competing in four competitions next season, having quality numbers to call on will be imperative.

But will Brendan have other ideas for KT if any deal comes to fruition? As we know KT can play anywhere across the backline and with injury issues at centre back, could the Arsenal man be accommodated in the centre?

  1. We all know K T is a great player but his best Celtic days are gone.
    His injuries have stalled his Arsenal career.
    A loan move would be a backward step for all.
    Let’s see if Scales can do a job on the left side.
    He has for the Dons.
    Hail Hail.

  2. A fit injury free Tierney would be welcome, he would only be on loan as expected fee and wages would not be to celtics advantage.
    He is a constant trier and winner, Arteta plays an average player first who sulks and loses the ball easily.
    Arsenal lost the league through lack of winners.
    Tierney is a winner and gives everything in a match.
