Tierney addresses speculation linking him with Manchester United

By Ryan Darby

Celtic defender Kieran Tierney has played down suggestions that he could leave for Manchester United this summer.

Speaking to The Times, as reported by the Metro, Tierney says the only thing he is concerned about at the moment is Celtic.

I’m not thinking about anyone other than Celtic just now. I’m enjoying my career here; I’ve just signed a six-year deal, so if that doesn’t say long-term, I don’t know what does.

The Premier League giants had reportedly sent scouts to run the rule over the youngster during their Scottish Cup semi-final against Rangers on Sunday.

Tierney impressed, as he has done all season for the Hoops in their 4-0 win at Hampden Park.

Several Premier League sides have been linked with the defender but United have been leading the race to sign him.

Jose Mourinho’s men are said to be impressed by the player’s versatility in defence and have earmarked him as a potential replacement for Luke Shaw and Ashley Young.
