Former Celtic star Kieran Tierney is to return to Ibrox for the first time since 2019. The left-back is set to play Rangers as part of a pre-season tour.

Arsenal will to Scotland’s capital to face Hibernian before making their way to the west of Scotland to play Rangers on the 17th of July.

During his time at Celtic, the 24-year-old never lost a game to the Govan side and will hope to keep it that way when the two sides meet next month. According to 11v11, the Gunners have played the Glasgow club once before, in 1989 where the London side came out on top.

Tierney revealed to SunSport that he is ‘buzzing’ to play against his old rivals again. He also revealed his thoughts prior to the game along with a wish for fans to be present;

“It will be a great game against Rangers, and hopefully there can be fans inside the ground too.

“I loved playing at Ibrox with Celtic, and it would be nice to get another win there.

“If there were to be Arsenal fans too then it would be a great atmosphere.

“But I know that’s probably unlikely because of the pandemic.


KT has recently signed a new deal with Arsenal, he made the switch down south in the summer of 2019, for a fee of around £25 million. Since arriving down in north London the Scottish International has had glowing reports.

The game is not currently scheduled to be broadcast on TV, instead to be shown on respective club’s platforms.
