Delight For Celtic Fans As Kieran Tierney Addresses Man United Link

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.
