Tierney happy to start again

Kieran Tierney felt he was making his Celtic debut again when he returned after three months absence.

The 19-year-old left-back had been sidelined with an ankle problem picked up against Rangers in October, with the time off allowing a shoulder problem to be addressed before he was reinstated against Albion Rovers in the William Hill Scottish Cup on January 22.

Ahead of the trip to St Johnstone on Sunday, where the Hoops look to extend their unbeaten domestic run since the start of the season to 29 games, Davies said: “It was like making my debut again, I had been out for so long.

“That was the first injury I had since breaking through and I felt brilliant.

“The last two or three months have been hard work.

“Now I am back and I am enjoying it.

“A lot of the times you are probably working harder than the boys who are training.

“It is game after game for them then recovering.

“I was working hard in the gym so yes, I feel fit.

“I was always going to get my shoulder done eventually, it needed doing and I was as well doing it when I had injured my ankle.

“We killed two birds with one stone there and there is nothing holding me back.”
