For the past 18 months, Manchester United have been linked with Celtic youngster Kieran Tierney. The combination of Jose Mourinho's antipathy towards Luke Shaw and make-shift full-back in Ashley Young has seen the 20-year-old touted as their solution.
However, Tierney has always maintained full commitment to Celtic, even signing a six-year contract last season. In an interview with the Times, he confirmed his long-term plan remains with the hoops in Glasgow:
I’m not thinking about anyone other than Celtic just now. I’m enjoying my career here; I’ve just signed a six-year deal, so if that doesn’t say long-term, I don’t know what does.
In the past former Celtic players like John Hartson and Chris Sutton have voiced concern that they are to lose their talented left-back but Tierney said his head isn't turned by any Premier League attention: "I just concentrate on going into training every day, with a smile on my face, working hard, and doing what I can to help the team. "
Tierney already has 120 appearances under his belt for Celtic including captaining the side on occasion.
