NEIL LENNON has made the admission that Kieran Tierney seems ‘uncomfortable’ during Friday’s training session as the defender was out through his paces.
In preparation for the Glasgow Derby on Sunday the player was being monitored by the Celtic coaching staff after the player had to drop out of Scotland duty due to an injury.
Lennon mentioned on Thursday the player was winning his fitness battle but today has had to temper expectations by admitting Kieran doesn’t look completely mobile.

Neil Lennon says his future at Celtic doesn’t depend on Sunday’s result against Rangers.
The Celtic boss says going 13 points ahead would be a ‘hammerblow’ – but that it wouldn’t decide the title.

Tierney missed the Glasgow Derby loss to The Rangers back in December and has only recently come back into the team from a major hip injury which has kept him out of action for nearly three months.
It would be a major blow to the bhoys if they don’t have their best defender to call upon on the day.
It would be up to Neil Lennon to decide whether Izzy or Hayes would step in to fill the void.
Not the best preparation for a Derby game by any stretch of the imagination.
