Kieran Tierney has finally left Celtic for Arsenal and the supporters aren’t sure what to think.
Tierney becomes Unai Emery’s fifth signing of the summer.
The full back leaves Parkhead having been a mainstay for the side since breaking through in 2015 and playing a pivotal part of the club’s treble treble success.
The fans aren’t sure what to make of his departure and the club’s official statement upon his sale doesn’t help.
Throughout the article the club and Neil Lennon assure the fans that they didn’t want to sell the 22-year-old, only doing so when they were aware that the player wanted to take the opportunity.
This hasn’t helped some fans who were already disappointed that he was leaving.
Others, meanwhile, wished him all the best in the Premier League after such a successfuland trophy-laden spell at the club he supports.
Take a look at what some of the fans had to say on Twitter about his departure:
You traded immortality for a library & money ?

Incoming embarrassing comments from our ‘fans’ regarding this. I personally wish him well and thank him for what he’s given us over the years, but no man is bigger than the club I support, so as always, I’ll be there to back the Bhoys forever more ?

Best of luck KT. Came back from the Hospital with a broken jaw to lift the Cup. Sat in with the fans when you weren’t playing. Orchestrated the GB. Been with us since you were 7 years old. Cost us nothing and gave us everything!!

A kid who grew up supporting club who won several trophies, was nothing but humble the entire time AND gave the clubs millions of dollars with his transfer. It’s his time to go, his career (esp at LB) can only go so far in Scotland. Should always be a legend. – From a Celtic fan
