Influences, Favourite Stadiums and Patrick Roberts all Come Up in Kieran Tierney Q&A

Influences, Favourite Stadiums and Patrick Roberts all Come Up in Kieran Tierney Q&A

Kieran Tierney has been answering fans’ questions on Celtic‘s Twitter account this afternoon, and the exciting young left-back has given us a glimpse into his life outside of football.

Following an incredible 18 months, Tierney is now one of British football’s most sought-after commodities, with his barnstorming performances seeing him liked with some of the biggest clubs in Europe.

But away from the pitch, his answers today show Tierney is still just a humble 19-year-old from Glasgow – and you probably won’t be surprised to learn that Patrick Roberts managed to come up in conversation too.

A massive Celtic fan growing up, Tierney didn’t have to think too hard about his favourite stadium, or how it felt making his debut:

Tierney also talked about some of his biggest influences, and it won’t surprise you given his position that a certain Brazilian World Cup winner played a big part in shaping his style of play:

And, obviously feeling a bit left out, his pal Paddy couldn’t help but get in touch:

With Roberts due to return to parent club Man City in the summer, it would be heartbreaking to see these two split up.

Were you surprised by any of his answers?
