01 May Tierney living dream of all Celtic fans after clinching title against Rangers
Kieran Tierney believes he is living the dream of Celtic supporters who are still on a high following the spectacular 5-0 title-clinching win over Rangers on Sunday.
The 20-year-old left-back came through the youth ranks at the club to become a top star in the side which wrapped up the seventh successive Ladbrokes Premiership title in stunning style at Parkhead, a week after coming up short in a 2-1 defeat at Hibernian.
It was the first time in 39 years that Celtic had won the league at home to Rangers and Tierney, named as the PFA Scotland young player of the year for the third year running later that day, told the Hoops’ official website that he is one of the fortunate Celtic fans in that he was on the pitch.
He said: “Winning like we did was a perfect way to clinch the league title.
“We were disappointed with the result last week so to bounce back and win in style like that in front of all your fans in a derby match is brilliant.
“It’s another wee bit of history for us as well.
“That’s seven in a row now and it’s something we can be very proud of. It was a great day all over.
“I think every Celtic fan visualises doing something like this and I’m just lucky enough to live it for them all. I’m making the most of it and enjoying every second.
“We went out and we were so clinical. Right from the start we just dominated. We don’t allow the pressure in games to affect us.
“We think about what can happen if we win. We always look to play our way and if we turn up and do that, we’ll win.”
