Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney has admitted he is missing Celtic Park, despite only having left the Scottish champions eight months ago.
The 22-year-old made the decision to move down South to further his career, with the Hoops agreeing a £25m fee with the Gunners back in August last year, but the fullback says the switch was a massive wrench:
“I miss everything about Celtic and I always will. I am very grateful for every second I spent playing for the club. I would say leaving Celtic was the hardest decision I’d ever had to make.”
“I knew I would always miss Celtic no matter what happens in life But the chance to play for Arsenal was a challenge that when I heard of it, I was just looking forward to it.”
Tierney has struggled for match time this season due to two major injuries. He arrived at the Emirates following a hernia operation and he only made his debut for Arsenal in late September.
The Scottish international then sustained a dislocated shoulder in the 3-1 win over West Ham in December which kept him out of action for a few months.
Although Tierney’s words do hint that he may be regretting his move to the Premier League, the likelihood of Celtic re-signing him in the immediate future is only a remote possibility considering how much he would cost.
