Kieran Tierney says he is still surprised every time he makes the Celtic team

The teenager made his Scotland senior debut yesterday evening.

Celtic have yet another Scotland international in their ranks after young left-back Kieran Tierney made his bow for his country last night.

He played as Scotland picked up a 1-0 win against Denmark, courtesy of Bournemouth winger Matt Ritchie taking advantage of Daniel Agger’s shocking defending.

The teen, born on the Isle of Man, has previously represented Scotland at under-18 and under-19 level. Scotland boss Gordon Strachan threw him straight at the deep end with a start against the Danes.

Tierney has now been discussing his first cap for his country, telling the BBC:

“I don't think anyone could have predicted this is the way the season would have gone for me so far, so I just hope it can continue.

"I'm delighted obviously to make my debut, but it was an important win for us and a good clean sheet again."

"I was excited and surprised [to be selected] but I've been surprised every time I've been on the Celtic teamsheet.

"It wasn't so much bad nerves. Everybody's the same obviously - your first cap, a bit of nerves before. But it's nothing negative. You need to make it positive.”

It was a memorable night for the Celtic teenager – who excelled in his first appearance.

It is easy to forget that the defender is just 18-years-old, especially on the evidence of performances like this.

The teenager has been a revelation at Celtic this season.

His performances in the Bhoys first-team have been fantastic this season and has seen him replace Honduran veteran Emilio Izaguirre as the number one left-back choice for Celtic throughout the campaign.

Hopefully this just the start of a glorious international and club career for Celtic’s newest youth product.
