It hasn’t been the best of months for Celtic – between transfer window woes, a premature Champions League exit and the petulant antics of Dedryk Boyata it has been a month where fans will want to move on from.
But somebody tell Kieran Tierney he’s not still living out his dream and he’ll quickly shoot you down.
With the fans feeling frustrated and in need of some good news, trust Kieran to give us all just a little shot in the arm.
That’s what the Celtic defender has done by coming out and speaking about the recent speculation linking him with a move away from Celtic Park.
Not just keen to dismiss the talk as unfounded and unwanted – the left back told fans exactly why he’s still in a Celtic jersey and not currently climbing up the Premier League money tree.
Speaking to the Daily Record the die hard Celtic fan set the record straight:
“There was obviously a lot of talk at the start of the transfer window during pre-season, more than before, but for me it’s just about switching off and focusing on Celtic.
“The money being spoken about and what you can earn in England is life-changing. It’s crazy, isn’t it? Absolutely crazy.”
“However, the money I am on, for someone at my age, is more than I ever thought I’d earn.
“My life has changed because of Celtic. I have them to thank for everything. I have given them everything, really all my life, and it’s paid off so far. I have enjoyed it.
What a bhoy!
We just seen John McGinn do the exact opposite of this young lad. He took the money instead of betting on himself and turning out for his bhoyhood heroes.
Kieran Tierney is a throwback to the old days of football where loyalty was valued and rewarded.
