You can take the Bhoy out of Scotland but you can’t take the Scotland out of the Bhoy. Kieran Tierney proved that last night as he was involved in a brilliant moment a few minutes after pulling Arsenal back into the tie.
Tierney was revered for his no-nonsense approach, which has endeared him to the Arsenal support. He just wasn’t going to suffer fools gladly.
A lifeline for Arsenal from Kieran Tierney!

The left-back made over 170 appearances for Celtic, winning five league titles and three League Cups and Scottish Cups during his time whilst enjoying hero status with supporters as being ‘one of us’.
The former Celtic defender left the Scottish Champions in the summer of 2019 for a fee in the region of £25m, becoming the most expensive Scottish export.
