New long-term deal for Tierney at Celtic

Five more years with champs

Manx-born Kieran Tierney has signed a five-year contract extension with Celtic.

The 19-year-old's new deal with the Scottish champions runs to the summer of 2021.

Tierney established himself as Celtic's first-choice left-back last season, playing 34 times, after making his debut in May 2015.

His performances last season led to him winning the Scottish Premiership's and Celtic's young player of the year awards.

Tierney had only signed a new deal until 2019 in August last year, but new manager Brendan Rogers has been keen to tie him down to a longer-term deal.
