Celtic Fans Are Rightly Concerned About Kieran Tierney’s Injury at Kilmarnock

Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney’s brilliant breakout season could be about to be disrupted by injury after he suffered a painful looking knock against Kilmarnock.

The 18-year-old has cemented himself in the Hoops’ starting XI since breaking into Ronny Deila’s team earlier in the campaign, and he even managed to earn his first-ever Scotland call-up last week, despite his youthful years.

Tierney was caught on the edge of the Killie penalty area as he launched one of his trademark forward bursts, and sprung to his feet initially.

But a few moments later, the pain didn’t subside, and despite treatment from the medical staff, Dedryck Boyata was summoned as his replacement, forcing Charlie Mulgrew to shift from centre-back to left-back.

His  facial expressions looked like Tierney was in a fair bit of pain, and as you can see from the picture above, he was seen with his ankle heavily packed with ice during the first-half’s closing stages.

Celtic fans were understandably concerned:
