Kieran Tierney has heavily been linked with a move to Arsenal but Celtic have made it hard for the gunners to get him as they have already had two bids rejected by the Scottish Champions. The gunners interest in Tierney goes way back to June but it’s surprising how it has taken all this time and the two clubs are yet to agree on a fee.
There has been some reports in the last few days which have claimed that Kieran Tierney has been ruled out for two months and most people have believed that this will see the North Londoners end their interest in the player since it wouldn’t be a great idea to sign an injured player who will be out for a long time.
Celtic manager Neil Lennon has however squashed those rumours in his latest press conference, he has confirmed that Kieran Tierney is not out for two months despite some reports in England claiming that he has had a set back in his recovery.
“I know there’s talk of him being out for another eight weeks, but that’s nonsense.” Neil Lennon told the Scottish Sun.
“I don’t know where that’s come from because that’s certainly not the case at all.”
The Celtic boss has also confirmed that Kieran Tierney will begin training next week and this statement by him will probably see Arsenal submit its third and final bid for the Scottish international who seems to be interested in a move to the Emirates Stadium this summer.
