It has been over 24 hours since Arsenal’s first bid for Kieran Tierney was thrown out by the club but tonight The Times are reporting a SECOND bid has gone into Celtic for their star defender.
The paper reports the London club have come in with a higher bid BUT it has immediately been thrown out once again by the Celtic hierarchy as it does not meet the club’s valuation.
Nobody else is running with this story at the moment and the Times do not mention where their information is coming from. With them low on a possible Celtic contacts the paper may be listening to sources close to Arsenal.
If true, it was signal a strong stance from Celtic who will not be messed around when it comes to their prized asset.
Kieran Tierney is under a long term deal and the player is a die hard Celtic fan so he won’t be banging the door down for a move like maybe others would in his position.
Celtic should not let Kieran go unless the bid smashes our transfer record and doesn’t just lightly pass the £20m mark we got for Moussa Dembele from Lyon.
