Kieran Tierney admitted that leaving Celtic was the hardest decision he had ever made. Revealing which Arsenal comrades had helped him adapt to life with the Gunners.”Tierney made a move from Scotland to London this past summer, leaving his stag club to go to the Emirates Stadium. This move came after 170 appearances for Celtic, as Tierney also secured Scotland as a regular. And, although his step was a goal reached true. Kieran says it was a difficult decision to quit Celtic after nearly 15 years with a Scottish club. “I would say that leaving Celtic was the hardest decision I have ever made, and I knew that I would always miss Celtic, no matter what happens in life.”

The chance to play for Arsenal was a challenge of my life

Kieran said: “but the chance to play for Arsenal was a challenge that when I heard about it. I was just looking forward to it.” Tierney’s time in London was difficult. Though, as a full-back has been struggling with injuries since taking the step. The 22-year-old defender underwent double hernia surgery in May 2019, delaying his debut at Arsenal. However, during this time he had a relationship with defenders Hector Bellerin and Konstantinos Mavropanos, as all three fought from injury. “The first two people I became friends with were Hector and Dinos since when I first came to my first sessions, I went out with them, and they were the first people I spoke to, “he said.

Hector and Dinos helped me a lot

“We were all wounded together at the same time, so they were the first people I talked to. They helped me to settle in. Tierney finally made his debut on September 24 before making his debut in the Premier League a month later. However, a shoulder injury limited him later in the season, with the defender currently making only 11 general appearances for Arsenal so far. His debut, however, really gave Tierney one memorable moment when he looks back into the battle and locks the following place going forward. “Probably the reception I received from you guys at my debut,” he answered the request to name his most memorable moment in the Arsenal T-shirt.

 

“The appearance after the injury is always brilliant, but Arsenal fans received me so well with a round of applause at the start, as well as when they replaced me, so the night of my debut against Forest was just a great night.”
