The rumour doing the rounds this morning is Kieran Tierney will sit out today’s League Cup tie against Partick Thistle – giving Emilio Izaguirre a chance to re-debut for the club.
Tierney sat out Celtic’s training session yesterday as a precaution but it’s thought the manager won’t want to risk the player if he doesn’t need to.
This scenario is the exact reason Brendan Rodgers brought the little Honduran back.
He can slide right into left back and the team won’t skip a beat.
Previously when Tierney has been missing, Celtic have had to change their entire shape because of it.
The away travelling support will be sure to give the returning Izzy a great reception.
