Being a Celtic player in a Scotland jersey can be a lonely place to be if you’re not playing to your potential.
Out of position in a team directed by the dinosaur McLeish, Kieran Tierney was not the only man on the field to have a poor game.
Lack of managers instinct and McLeish’s desperate need to fit both Robertson and Tierney into his system is hurting both stars rather than helping.
The Celtic left back tried to clear a cross last night in Isreal and accidentally put it beyond his own goalkeeper.
While some want to look at the bigger picture on why Scotland were so woeful against a side we’re more than capable of beating, there are too many people gleefully taking aim at the Celtic star.
Being a double treble winner creates envy and when the vultures can ground you and get their digs in, they’re going to do it.
Tierney is a big boy and will take the flack but it will deflect from the real failing here.
Near the end of Gordon Strachan’s tenure, there were signs of a decent Scotland side after the former Celtic manager stopped being so pig-headed. Scotland is going backwards at an alarming rate and that’s nothing to do with Kieran Tierney.
