In their Monday edition, the Daily Mail write that Kieran Tierney has ‘yet to win over the Arsenal faithful’ which is nothing but pile of bull.
Tierney arrived from Celtic in the summer in a deal worth £25m and a reputation for being a passionate, committed and highly-talented young defender.
His first season at the club couldn’t really have gone much worse as he suffered injury after injury and has only been able to play 743 minutes for Arsenal so far.
But that’s all us fans have needed for him to win us over.
Ask any Arsenal supporter with sense and they will tell you that what they’ve seen from Tierney they already love and can’t wait to see him playing regularly for the club.
But that’s not what the Daily Mail want you to think.
No, they write, “Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney is yet to win over the Emirates faithful as his first season at the club has been ravaged by injury.
“He has no such issues with supporters of former club Celtic and his hero status with the green half of Glasgow was cemented last week when he trolled Old Finn rivals Rangers on social media. Rangers tweeted followers asking for their best pictures of themselves, family and friends at Ibrox. Tierney (above) responded swiftly with a snap of himself and his Celtic team-mates celebrating a victory on enemy turf.”
There is, of course, no need to mention anything at all about Tierney’s relationship with Arsenal fans, no matter if it is positive or negative. The Daily Mail have simply dropped it in out of spite and to add a few more words to their piece.
If you aren’t aware, the Daily Mail are just one of the many papers that like to suck off Celtic the same way they do Liverpool.
