KIERAN TIERNEY may be long gone from Celtic but the ethos of the club and what we are about still run through the former Celtic defender.
His move to Arsenal was headline news when the quiet unassuming lad was subject of a record-breaking bid from the London club. His place in Celtic history cemented as an invincible and a treble treble winner.
Now at the Emirates and not even kicked a ball yet the player has become a hero among the Arsenal support who were desperate to land the player during the window.
It was a juxtaposition from the usual ‘farmer league’ taunts we hear from down south, the London club and their fans were obsessed with landing the player from a league they like to belittle.
As Kieran readies himself for his debut the Scottish defender has taken time out to send a letter to a young Arsenal fan who was bullied and Arsenal shirt burned.
The player sent a personal letter to the 15-year-old and a signed jersey telling the lad to stay strong.
You can take the bhoy out of Celtic…
Kieran Tierney is a class act. A 15 year old boy was bullied and his Arsenal top burnt by those people with cigarettes.[@ScottishSun] pic.twitter.com/uPWlddnhgR
Tierney gave this boy a signed Arsenal top with the words 'Stay Strong', coupled with a beautiful letter.
