At least two Arsenal accounts are peddling the news Arsenal are in for Kieran Tierney and Celtic are ready to accept a derisory offer for their star man.
The report coming from both sites lacks any understanding beyond their preconceived notions of footballers playing in Scotland from an English supporters perspective.
Why wouldn’t Celtic take £10million plus two players for their prized asset, I mean what else are they going to realistically get for a guy playing in Scotland, eh?
That seems to be the mentality down south. The report lacks substance and it also lacks any knowledge of the player in question.
After Brendan Rodgers left the club earlier this year, I will never say never in football but at this point in time I just don’t see Celtic and Tierney getting together to manufacture a move away from the club with history on the line.
Let me rephrase – I can’t see Tierney wanting to move on before their tilt for ten in a row has reached its conclusion. There is more money down south and if you look at Andy Robertson there is plenty of room for glory if you make the right moves.
However, we have a guy on our hands who is a bit special. A lad who has been with Celtic from an early stage, is a proper Celtic fan in every sense of the word and who has plenty of time for a big money move.
This is by no means a knock on Arsenal, but there will be a queue for the defender when he is eventually made available and it will be for much more than these two below sites anticipate.
Jenkinson to Celtic on a permanent deal and Osei-tutu on a year long loan to Celtic plus 10m for Kieran Tierney will make sense a lot.
Tierney is just 22 and still has at least 8 years. Would be the best signing for us considering the situation we find ourselves.

No concrete report yet as such for Jenko going to celtic, its just some speculation. But the Osei-Tutu links to Celtic are concrete ones from SportBild and Football Insider. Jenko + Osei-Tutu (loan) +£20m for Tierney and we have a deal. @CelticFC 🤝
