Arsenal Update On Kieran Tierney Means Scotland Play-Off Place is in Serious Doubt

Arsenal’s update on Kieran Tierney should worry Steve Clarke and Scotland on his involvement in their play-off against Israel.

The Gunners full-back limped out of Monday night’s Premier League clash with West Ham.

It looked like a shoulder knock for Tierney at the time, but fans would have hoped he’d not sustained a serious injury.

However, the club today confirmed that Tierney did dislocate his shoulder and that will now keep him out for the next three months.

Per arsenal.com, the club wrote:

Right shoulder. Dislocated right shoulder during West Ham United (a). Kieran will undergo surgery next week and will rehabilitate for around three months.

That now puts his place in the Scotland squad to play Israel on March 26th in doubt.

Clarke’s men take on the Israelis at Hampden in the semi-final of the Euro 2020 play-offs – with a spot in the final against either Norway or Serbia up for grabs.

Tierney last played for Scotland in a 2-1 defeat to Israel back in 2018, missing the entire Euro 2020 qualifying campaign through injury.
