Celtic defender Kieran Tierney impressed for his side in their 1-0 pre-season friendly win against Sparta Prague on Tuesday, and some Bhoys fans have delivered their verdict on the 21-year-old and are desperate to keep hold of him.
The Scotland international has been heavily linked with a move to the English Premier League and Everton in particular in recent days despite signing a new six-year deal last October, with a fee of £25m mooted.
The Celtic Park faithful understandably wouldn’t want to lose one of their own who has become such an important player for them over the course of the last couple of years, and he showed his threat in the final third against Sparta by twice going close to scoring in the opening quarter-of-an-hour.
Some Celtic supporters, others of whom have decided on the players they want Brendan Rodgers to sign this summer, have had their say on Tierney’s future via social media during and after his latest display, and while one said “if you sell Tierney I want my season ticket money back”, another said “don’t let this man ever go”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Don’t go 😢

Feel physically sick that Tierney could be leaving. No player is bigger than the club but this player is one of our own born and bred in the club and if he does go it’s gonna hurt a lot. @CelticFC @kierantierney1 Don’t do it too us
