Tierney’s love for Celtic will make it hard for interested clubs to secure his signature

As reported by The Sun, English Premier League side Bournemouth are the latest team to enter the race to sign Celtic star Kieran Tierney.

What’s the story?

The potential and passion of Tierney was again on full display this weekend as the Hoops thrashed Rangers 5-0 at Celtic Park, with the left-back crucial to the performance and leading celebrations with supporters after the match.

Understandable then that he continues to attract interest from the English Premier League.

The Sun say that Bournemouth are the latest team to seek the £20m-rated defender’s signature and are willing to battle with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United to land their man.

The paper reckon that the Cherries will attempt to lure him south with the promise of regular first team football in the English top-flight.

Will Tierney be leaving Celtic?

Still just 20 years of age, the Scotland international has plenty of years left at Celtic before entertaining a move away from Glasgow.

The club are in a strong enough financial position to resist attempts to buy him and the player is clearly happy enough at his boyhood heroes.

With four goals and 11 assists this season, the left-back continues to develop and improve under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers and it’s going to take a massive offer both in terms of financial benefits and personal improvement to lure him away from Glasgow.

The time to leave may come in the future, but in the short-term, the prospect of him leaving seems very slim indeed.
