Kieran Tierney posts emotional message to the Celtic Family

KIERAN TIERNEY has posted this message to the Celtic support this evening just hours after completing his £25million transfer to Arsenal.

“This is coming from the bottom of my heart! I don’t know how to even begin tout the last 15 years of my life into words…what you as fans have given me and my family I cannot repay you in any way possible and for that I am sorry.

“From the age of seven I have played for the club I love and will continue to love till the day I die no matter what happens.

“Every single second of my Celtic career was a dream and I gave my all every single time I stepped onto that pitch, it’s honestly the least I could do for everyone involved at the club.

“There are too people to thank individually so I don’t even know where to begin. Every single coach and staff member who has helped me on my way to where I am today, I am so grateful for all the hours help you put in to making me a better player and a better person.

“My teammates have been the best I could possibly have asked for, what a bunch of legends man who I’ll be supporting until the end.

“Where can I start with the fans? I tried my best to represent you every time I went onto that pitch. The relationship we had together and the memories we created and history we made was incredible.

“I will cherish every single second of it. I hoe we can continue to have a relationship although I understand that will be never for some people which is heartbreaking for me but I understand the emotions surrounding this situation.

“It has been the hardest day or two of my life and I really appreciate every single message of support from you all. This was not easy in any way, shape or form. To end I’d like to mention the special relationship I had with the Ultras, who I have grown up with from BHOYS and GREEN BRIGADE…the atmosphere you create to help the team is massive and it helped me so much over the last few years..I thank you so much for these times together, what we have achieved as a club the last few years isn’t possible without you and all the fans.

“This is not nearly enough of what I am feeling but I literally cannot put into words with the emotion I am feeling towards you all but I hope I showed you every game that I was lucky enough to play. Good bless, pray, green heart, at Celtic FC.”
