Scotland fans react on Twitter to Celtic talent Kieran Tierney’s senior call-up

Celtic Park

Kieran Tierney has been called up to the Scotland squad.

Kieran Tierney has built on his great season to win his first ever senior call-up for Scotland.

The 18-year-old left-back has played 23 games this season, recently establishing himself as Celtic’s first-choice ahead of the experienced Emilio Izaguirre.

Considering his lack of experience at the start of the season, Tierney has done extremely well to break into Ronny Deila’s squad with such ease, and few would doubt the talent that the youngster possesses.

He is one of the most highly rated young players in Scottish football, and there have been calls for him to make the step up to the senior international stage since he broke into the Celtic first-team.

Capped at Under-18 and -19 level, Tierney will be hoping to make his debut when the Scots take on Denmark on March 29.

Following the announcement, Scottish football fans took to Twitter to react to the news, with varying views on Tierney’s call-up.

Celtic fans are understandably pleased, and Tierney does deserve the chance to impress at senior level, but other fans are critical of Gordon Strachan calling up the youngster ahead of Aberdeen’s Graeme Shinnie.

Shinnie has never been capped at senior level by Scotland, but he has excelled in the Premiership this season, and at 24-years-old, he is the perfect age to bring into the international fold.
