Tierney Hopeful That Celtic Have Turned A Corner After Poor Start To The Season

Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney is not sure why the Scottish champions’ form has started to improve in recent weeks.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have been criticised for their performances in both the league and in Europe this season, but a convincing 3-0 win over Hearts in the semi-final of the League Cup at the weekend was the clearest indication yet of a turnaround in the club’s fortunes.

When asked to account for the upturn in form, Tierney couldn’t put his finger on what has changed, as he says training and match preparation has not been altered:

“Even at the start of the season it was hard to say things had even changed. What we do in training over the last two years, nothing has changed.”

“We just do what we do and eventually things have clicked back into place. The last few games we’ve played very well and you’re hoping that can last.”

“Everyone mentioned the start we’ve had wasn’t the best, we know that. But it appears we’re moving in the right direction now.”

Celtic face Dundee in the Scottish Premiership at Dens Park this evening. The Hoops will be expecting a comfortable win with their opponents having picked up just one win in ten games so far this season.

However, the Glasgow side do have some major injury concerns heading into the game, with the medical team having no less than 10 players on the treatment table.
