Liverpool’s Andrew Robertson has commented on Kieran Tierney’s future.
Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson has told Sky Sports that he thinks Kieran Tierney will make the right choice about his future.
Tierney, 22, has come up through the Celtic ranks, and has now become a first-team star with his boyhood club, living out the dream for many fans.
The left back has racked up over 150 appearances for Celtic, winning four league titles whilst playing a key part in the treble treble winning side.
Tierney is unsurprisingly attracting major interest off the back of his displays for Celtic, with Arsenal particularly keen – and Sky Sports claim the Gunners are confident a deal will be done.
Celtic continue to try and keep Tierney at Parkhead, but Arsenal will give them a real fight before the transfer deadline in England next week.
Many have had their say about Tierney’s future, and Liverpool’s Robertson – another left back who knows Tierney from Scotland duty – has offered his thoughts.
Robertson believes that Tierney is a ‘very good’ footballer, and thinks he will make ‘the right choice’ about his future, noting that he is Celtic ‘through and through’ and that shouldn’t be discounted.
“I’ve played with KT for Scotland and he’s played right back and centre back. I’ve watched him and he’s a very good footballer,” said Robertson. “Last season he obviously had his injury problems. Whatever happens with KT is up to him and the people around him.”
“He’ll make the right choice. He’s a Celtic boy through and through and you can’t take that away from him. Let’s see how it unfolds. Good luck to him whatever he does,” he added.
Celtic will hope that Tierney listens to Robertson and keeps his love for the Bhoys in mind when deciding his future, even if just to stay for one more season.
