Ex-Celtic defender Paul Caddis has told the Daily Record that defender Kieran Tierney is facing an ‘enormous’ decision.
The Scotland full-back could be faced with leaving the Hoops this summer, with Arsenal keen on completing a transfer (Evening Standard).
Tierney has played 170 games for the Hoops but Caddis has warned him that choosing to leave won’t be an easy decision to make.
The ex-Celtic youngster left Parkhead in search of first-team football in 2010 and appreciates what Tierney must be feeling.
He told the Daily Record: “He’s played every week and done it all now at Celtic and maybe he wants to get away and try something different.
“Maybe the emotion of it all is getting to him but I do know it’ll be extremely hard for him to leave.
“He’s come through the club as I did at the various age groups, he supports the club and you can see the connection he has with the fans. It’s going to be an enormous decision.”
It shouldn’t really be too big of a decision for Tierney to make should Arsenal have a bid accepted.
Playing in one of Europe’s top leagues should be the pinnacle of a player’s career. If the Celtic star makes the leap it is unlikely that he will regret it.
Arsenal hold ambitions of returning to the Champions League and Tierney can help the club achieve that.
He would be a first-team regular at the Emirates Stadium and should jump at the chance to move.
