Jamie Redknapp waxes lyrical about 'incredible' Arsenal star Kieran Tierney
Jamie Redknapp gave a short but emphatic response to the performance of Kieran Tierney after Arsenal defeat Tottenham 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium yesterday.
The left-back was once again in tremendous form as the Gunners ensured bragging rights over their fierce North London rivals.
Arsenal won the game thanks to goals from Martin Odegaard and Alexandre Lacazette, with Erik Lamela netting for the visitors.
Mikel Arteta’s men remain in tenth place but should now have the confidence to kick on higher up the division.
Jamie Redknapp was in the Sky studio as part of the coverage and he issued a short but ultimately emphatic response to the performance of Tierney.
He told the channel: “Kieran Tierney is an incredible left-back. What a player he is.”
The Scotland international checked in at Arsenal during the summer of 2019 for £25 million and has proved a revelation since.
Tierney has played 54 games for the club after missing a large chunk of last season through injury.
The £80,000-a-week player is proving a real steal of a signing from an Arsenal perspective and is growing with each game.
At 23 he has bags of time left to continue his development and he’s a big player in Arteta’s ranks.
TBR View: Tierney proving the real deal
Arriving from Celtic some supporters will have been uncertain over his ability to cut the mustard in England.
Given his form during 2020/21 there is now no doubt as to just how much quality Tierney possesses.
He is one of the first names on Areta’s team-sheet and the excitement for Arsenal fans is wondering just how good he can become in the next few years.
