Kieran Tierney already has eight trophies from his time in Scotland with Celtic and the Scot’s boyhood club wasted no time in congratulating their former son after Arsenal beat Chelsea at Wembley to claim their 14th FA Cup.

Keiran Tierney and Celtic are practically inseparable, and while we all hope he will one day come to love Arsenal almost as much as his boyhood club, I think we all know that’s where is heart truly belongs.

But, for now, we own his body, and it is one he put on the line at Wembley in another performance Gordon Strachan would no doubt say was down to his ‘lunatic personality’.

Tierney was a late sub in the game as Arteta looked to run down the clock but the 23-year-old, after a shaky start to his Arsenal career due to a number of injuries, has well and truly arrived.
