Scotland's Kieran Tierney poses ahead of the press conference
Celtic defender Kieran Tierney has enjoyed a brilliant 2016/17 domestic campaign, and his meteoric rise has not gone unnoticed.
Liverpool are looking to add a top quality left-back for their upcoming season, and have earmarked Tierney as a potential option.
James Milner, primarily a central midfielder, has played in the left back role last season, but he is not a long term solution for that position.

Alberto Moreno has majorly disappointed and he could be sold out this summer.
Tierney was in action in Scotland’s Euro Qualifier against England, and put up an impressive performance.
Judging by the Twitter reactions, it seems Liverpool fans were heavily impressed with the young full-back. Here are some of the selected tweets:
