‘Please Make It’ ‘Don’t Break My Heart’ – Fans Left Sweating Over Celtic Star’s Fitness For Old Firm Clash

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that Kieran Tierney remains a doubt for the Old Firm Derby tomorrow afternoon.

The 21-year-old has not played since the 2-1 loss to Red Bull Salzburg earlier this month due to a knee injury.

At his pre-match press conference this morning, Rodgers said that Tierney has an outside chance of featuring:

“He is a doubt, but we’ll assess after training and see how he is.”

Fans on Twitter are praying that the fullback is fit to face Rangers:

It’s more than likely that Emilio Izaguirre will be given another run out despite his mistake in the 4-3 win over Aberdeen on Wednesday.

The Honduran gave away a penalty in the first half, fouling Niall McGinn after making a poor challenge in the box, and was substituted at halftime for Jonny Hayes.

lthough Hayes did well in the second-half at Pittodrie, it does seem unlikely that Rodgers would employ a makeshift fullback against Rangers when he has an experienced left-back fit and available.
