BRENDAN RODGERS has today dashed the hopes of thousands of Celtic fans by confirming the left back is not ready to return to action for the bhoys against Valencia.

Images from training today showed a relaxed and energised Kieran Tierney giving us some hope the player would play some part in the Europa League tie.
However, the Celtic manager is taking no chances with the defender and wants him fighting for for the rest of the season.
It would be careless of Rodgers to put Kieran in if he felt his recovery could be significantly hampered by playing a highly competitive and intense game against the Spaniards.
It should only be a matter of time before we see the young lad pull on the hoops again but Izzy is likely to deputise again in his absence.
Celtic will be playing in front of a sell out crowd tomorrow and fans are hoping for a big performance.
