Chance for Calvin Miller?

Tierney has played regularly at left-back for Celtic for a while now, but his injury could open the door for Calvin Miller.

Miller is also 20 years of age and operates as a left-back, and manager Brendan Rodgers could well decide to give the youngster a rate start.

The former Scotland Under-17 international told The Daily Record last month that he could have joined St Johnstone on loan in the January transfer window.
