Kieran Tierney getting better all the time under Brendan Rodgers

As reported by the BBC, Kieran Tierney reckons that despite his brilliant form he is still improving and learning all the time thanks to his manager Brendan Rodgers.

Tierney has had an excellent campaign and even though he was out for three months with ankle and shoulder problems has slotted right back into the Celtic first team with ease.

He’s always looked a bit of a player for the Hoops, ever since his debut in 2015, but under Rodgers you can tell he’s entered a new phase of his development.

No surprise then that he recognises the contribution of his manager and coaching staff.

As quoted by the BBC, Tierney said on Tuesday:

He’s made me, technically, a much better player. They’ve worked hard on that, him and the coaches, and they’ve just emphasised that I work on a lot of stuff. That’s what I’ve done in training and after training. Touches and passes, I’m working on that, and my crosses as well, so I’m working on a lot of stuff. I’m still young.

Despite the goalscoring exploits of the likes of Scott Sinclair and Moussa Dembele, it’s a testament to the performances of Tierney that he is still a contender for Player of the Year awards at the end of the season.

Just how good can he become?
