Celtic fans have been left hurt after Kieran Tierney’s Instagram story last night.

Tierney posted a picture of himself meeting up with Patrick Roberts on social media last night, and it was a friendship which developed at Celtic Park.


During Roberts’s loan spell at Parkhead, he became great friends with Tierney, and it appears that they have stayed in contact ever since.


The picture hurt Celtic fans as neither of the pair belong to Neil Lennon’s side anymore.

Celtic were unable to agree a permanent deal for Roberts, who is now at Norwich City, and they sold Tierney to Arsenal for £25 million (BBC Sport) over the summer.

During their time with Celtic, Roberts and Tierney were both key players for the Glasgow side, and their talents were clear to see.

Both Roberts and Tierney are both still waiting to make their Premier League debuts for their new sides.
