Kieran Tierney desperate for extended run in Celtic's first team

Kieran Tierney has made eight appearances for Celtic so far this season.

Kieran Tierney has urged Ronny Deila to keep selecting him for Celtic’s first team, at a press conference hosted on Tuesday.

The youngster has broken into the Bhoys’ starting line-up in recent weeks, and he has put in some impressive performances.

The 18-year-old has played with passion and energy whenever he has been given a chance, and Tierney says that he is loving life in the first team.

Tierney started to show signs of his ability towards the back end of last season, but his performances this time around have really brought him into contention.

The academy graduate has coped with whatever challenge has been thrown at him, and he has excelled both in domestic and European competition.

Tierney has now made eight senior appearances for the Bhoys this season, and he will be keen to establish his place over the coming weeks.

The next outing for Ronny Deila's side comes against Hamilton, and the Bhoys could extend their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership to 10 points if they are able to win.
