Celtic make new statement about Kieran Tierney amid Arsenal’s interest

Celtic make new statement about Kieran Tierney amid Arsenal’s interest

No time frame has been placed on a return of the left-back, but the bigger question now is whether he will still be at Celtic when he is ready to play again.

Arsenal came in for the Scotland left-back with a £15m bid at the end of June, but the offer was turned down.

The newspaper says Celtic were unhappy with the amount of add-ons we included in the offer as they want the vast majority of the payment up front plus the Glasgow giants are demanding a sell-on clause is included in Tierney's contract. Spending more than half of their remaining budget on a single player will be questionable, especially with the left-back area not in as much of a desperate need of strengthening as the central defence and the wide attack.

Lennon cited Aaron Wan-Bissaka's £50m switch to Manchester United, claiming Tierney, 22, is a more "rounded" full-back. Exchange bets excluded. Full T&Cs Apply.

"The club's valuation of Kieran has not been met and until then we don't have a discussion".

Instead, the president's tweets, which evoked the trope of telling black people to go back to Africa, brought Democrats together. Democrats rallied around the four congresswomen, which Trump indicated in a tweet later Monday might have been his goal.

"£50m for Wan-Bissaka is a lot of money and we feel that Kieran is a far more experienced and rounded full-back at this juncture in his career".

"We just want to get the right players in if the price is good and we think there's quality and re-sellable value in them as well". "I don't know what Arsenal's financial state is". "

"There has been a second bid, the bid has been rejected and it's as you were."


Arsenal face competition from Serie A side Napoli for Tierney's signature.

Arsenal's failure to finish inside the Premier League top four last season and their loss in the Europa League final has left them without Champions League football for next season.

NEIL LENNON says that Celtic won't be drawn into an arms race with Rangers, with his focus entirely on improving his own squad rather than worrying about what is going on at Ibrox.
