Celtic teenager Kieran Tierney betters teammates

A look at how Kieran Tierney played for Celtic against Fenerbahce.

Ronny Deila showed his trust in Celtic youngster Kieran Tierney by starting him in the Europa League against a dangerous Fenerbahce side.

The teenager showed that faith was well placed, by producing an assured display against the Turkish side, who boasted former Manchester United duo Robin van Persie and Nani in the starting line-up.

Celtic roared into a 2-0 lead, but were pegged back to share the points, with the game ending 2-2.

Tierney showed he was ready for the opportunity, bettering his defensive teammates with his tackling.

The 18-year-old full-back made five tackles during the draw, more than the rest of the defence combined.

Mikael Lustig managed two, Dedryck Boyata one, while Efe Ambrose did not make a single tackle.

A draw was overall a fair result, with Celtic allowing Fenerbahce too much space to impose their own game, and did not recover after being pegged back.

Tierney's display was once of the positives they could take away from the draw, in what was just his sixth senior appearance for the club.
