Celtic boss reacts to Tierney performance

The Norwegian was impressed with the 18-year-old's Europa League display.

Celtic boss Ronny Deila says he was 'very happy' with Kieran Tierney's Europa League performance against Fenerbahce on Thursday night.

Indeed, the Norwegian insists the Scottish champions must take the positives from their 2-2 stalemate with the Turkish side, having surrendered a 2-0 lead against them.

And one of those positives was 18-year-old Tierney, who Deila feels had a 'very good' European debut.

The teenager caught the eye for Celtic at Parkhead, although the raucous home atmosphere couldn't inspire his side to a win.

Deila also praised skipper Scott Brown, who he feels was 'fantastic' and worked exceptionally hard against Fenerbahce.

It marks a significant improvement from the experienced midfielder, who received criticism both for his Celtic and Scotland displays a few weeks ago.

Next up for the Bhoys in the Europa League is a trip to Molde, before Celtic then host the same side at Parkhead.

They'll need to register their first win of the group stage soon but, after two draws, find themselves second in the table - meaning they are still in a good position with plenty to play for.
