Celtic fans react on Twitter to Tierney to Southampton transfer talk

Celtic fans are desperate for the club to resist advances from Southampton for Kieran Tierney.

Celtic youngster Kieran Tierney has emerged as a transfer target for Southampton The Scottish Sun report.

Tierney, 18, won his first Scotland cap this week, and Celtic fans are desperate for their club to hang onto the youngster.

Southampton have raided Celtic three times in recent seasons, signing Victor Wanyama, Fraser Forster, and just last summer signing Virgil Van Dijk.

Tierney's career is just getting started, and losing him at this fledgling stage would be an even more depressing blow than selling any of the previous trio.

There is a good chance they will be able to convince Tierney to stick around, given that the left-back grew up as a Celtic fan and still has plenty to achieve at the club.

Despite sporadic appearances last season, this year is his first full season as a regular in Ronny Deila's side.

Just last August he signed a four-year contract at the club, meaning Celtic are under no pressure to sell, despite the money Southampton may be able to throw at them.

Here is a look at how fans reacted to the reports...
