Kieran Tierney Make’s UEFA’s Champions League Breakthrough Team of 2017

Kieran Tierney Make’s UEFA’s Champions League Breakthrough Team of 2017

Celtic defender Kieran Tierney is not only catching the eye in Scotland, but he’s also making waves in the continent too, after being selected in a prestigious UEFA list.

Every year, European football’s governing body compiles a squad of young players aged 24 or under who have ‘made a major leap’ in the Champions League this season, and Scotland left-back Tierney has made the grade.

To put the achievement into context, he’s joined by Man City goalkeeper Ederson, Barcelona right-back Nelson Semedo, budding Real Madrid superstar Marco Asensio – and even Kylian Mbappé.

Of course, fans in Scotland – and scouts in the English Premier League – have known of Tierney’s ability and promise for some time now, but to be thrown into such a remarkable list speaks volumes about his progress as a player, doesn’t it?

What do you think of the achievement? And will this make it more difficult for Celtic to hold onto him next summer?
