Celtic midfielder Scott Brown and Leicester City central defender Filip Benkovic have responded to Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney’s post on Instagram.
Tierney has revelled in Arsenal’s win against Sheffield United away from home in the sixth round of the FA Cup on Sunday.
The Scotland international left-back played well for the Gunners, and he has expressed his delight on Instagram.
Celtic star Brown has responded to his former Hoops’ teammate’s post, and so has Leicester City central defender Benkovic – currently on loan at Bristol City – who also played with Tierney at Celtic Park.
Brown responded: “Flying pal you are”.
Benkovic responded: “Rolls royce on the left side”.
According to WhoScored, Tierney took two shots which were not on target, played one key pass, had a pass accuracy of 67.6%, won two headers, took 58 touches, made one tackle, one interception and one clearance, and put in five crosses.
So far this season, the 23-year-old left-back has made six starts and two substitute appearances in the Premier League, and has provided two assists in four Europa League games for Arsenal, according to WhoScored.
Tierney is a very good left-back who showed what he is capable of when he was at Celtic, but injuries have affected his progress and development at Arsenal so far.
