Steven Gerrard Is A Big Fan Of Celtic Left-Back Kieran Tierney

The embarrassment of Celtic's 5-0 defeat to PSG in their opening game of the Champions League group stage - the club's biggest ever home loss in Europe - was eased on Wednesday night with an impressive 3-0 win away to Anderlecht.

The goals came via Leigh Griffiths, Patrick Roberts and Scott Sinclair.

Young left-back Kieran Tierney was one of those who impressed most for Brendan Rodgers' side. He provided the assist for Celtic's first goal, flying forward from his station to lay the ball on a plate for Griffiths.

Post-match, on BT Sport, Gary Lineker and in particular Steven Gerrard were impressed with the 20-year-old.

I really enjoyed the first goal tonight. The ball inside from Olivier Ntcham, the cross across the box by Kieran Tierney and the finish.

It was a wonderful team goal and I know Brendan works on this type of stuff on the training ground and he’ll be very happy with that first goal.

Gary Lineker described Tierney as a 'real talent' while Gerrard believes plenty of teams will be casting their eye over the Isle of Man-born player.

Excellent left back, attacking fullback and I’m sure a lot of sides are watching him.
