A Sky Sports reporter has claimed the Arsenal bid for Kieran Tierney was only £18m up front with £7m of staggered payments and potential add ons.

If this is true, it’s completely embarrassing for a Premier League club, especially when Neil Lennon confirmed the club have told Arsenal their price.

The penny pinching Europa League side are trying to bag themselves a bargain just because the player they know is quality plays in the Scottish Premier League.

After Andy Robertson becoming a household name and Virgil van Dijk coming through from the Scottish League to be the most expensive defender in football to this point, Celtic do not want to sell their player for a relatively low amount.

The Premier League made this market what it is and if they badly want the player they must pull out the stops and pretend Tierney has had an above average season at Crystal Palace.

When a £15m bid comes in from Oli McBurnie and is rejected down south, it only proves Celtic are doing the right thing.
