Celtic legend believes Neil Lennon must protect ‘main man’

Kieran Tierney is a big player for Celtic but his season could be over after his boss confirmed surgery is required.

Former Celtic striker John Hartson thinks boss Neil Lennon must tread carefully with ‘main man’ Kieran Tierney, according to the Evening Times.

Boss Neil Lennon admitted over the weekend that Tierney might require surgery to rectify some discomfort in his pelvis.

The 21-year-old has played 39 games in all competitions this season for the Hoops and although he is a star player for Lennon, Hartson believes his long-term health is more important.

He told the Evening Times: “He must be handled correctly and the long-term must come into consideration.

“He’s a huge player for Celtic, the main man really, so I totally understand that they will be desperate to get him on the pitch whenever they can.


“They need to wrap him in cotton wool and make sure he’s right for next season.”

TBR Verdict

Tierney is, without doubt, a crucial member of Celtic’s squad and a massive player for Neil Lennon.

Hartson is right though when he says that the Hoops must tread carefully.

Celtic are still battling to secure two more trophies but they shouldn’t falter in the race for the title now.

The Hoops boast some adequate backup within their ranks and if the operation is necessary then doing it now is best for all parties in preparation for next season.
