Celtic fans react to Kieran Tierney’s goodbye message

Kieran Tierney has made his goodbyes after signing for Arsenal, but Celtic fans aren’t quite sure how to feel.

Tierney made the switch to the Premier League side just before the English transfer deadline closed on Thursday, and has penned a poignant message to the Hoops supporters after his departure.

Tierney came through the youth academy at Parkhead and won an incredible 11 trophies in the green and white hoops.

The 22-year-old quickly established himself as not just the club’s first-choice left-back but as a fan-favourite upon breaking through in 2015. A fan himself, this departure clearly hurt him as much as it hurt some of the supporters.

There are a few supporters wishing nothing but the best for the Scotland international as he makes the switch to North London. Others, though, would’ve liked him to stay, particularly with the prospect of ten-in-a-row so close.

It’s a transfer that was always bound to leave emotions high as he was, and to many still is, in their hearts as a Celtic hero.

Here’s what the devasted fans had to say about Tierney’s heartfelt goodbye on Twitter:
