Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers speaks glowingly about Kieran Tierney

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers have hailed the abilities of defender Kieran Tierney, and insists that the youngster does not know how good he is.

The 20-year-old left-back has become an influential player for club and country following his remarkable rise since making his first-team in 2015.

In an exclusive interview with TalkSPORT, Rodgers spoke about the qualities of his young full-back, who is attracting plenty of transfer interest, he said: "Kieran has real qualities and determination. He is one of those old school boys who just works hard every day in training. He doesn’t know how good he actually is – which is really nice. He has no ego. He is a huge Celtic fan and if he had scored at the weekend I don’t know what Kieran would have done! He had a shot at goal and I wouldn’t like to see him score against Rangers if he was on a booking that’s for sure!"
