Arsenal told they have a truly 'top class' talent in their ranks who's a 'real threat' in attack

Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney is a “top class” talent, according to Charlie Mulgrew.

The 23-year-old has been sensational for the Gunners despite a poor Premier League season.

Likewise, Tierney has been in great form for Scotland, helping his nation reach Euro 2020.

Scotland are currently fine-tuning their preparations ahead of the tournament and faced the Netherlands on Wednesday.

Celtic strike Premier Sports deal - is this the "additional value" we've been waiting for?

The two nations played out a 2-2 draw at the Estadio Algarve in Portugal.

Jack Hendry opened the scoring on 10 minutes before Memphis Depay equalised seven minutes later.

Kevin Nisbet thought he had netted the winner from close range on 63 minutes.

However, Depay fired home a superb free kick in the 89th minute to deny the Scots victory.

And throughout the game, Tierney impressed, resulting in 8/10 ratings from both the Daily Record and The Scotsman.

Speaking after the game, Mulgrew spoke highly about the Gunners ace.

“Kieran’s class, a top class player,” he told Sky Sports.

“You see the level he’s playing at in the Premier League with Arsenal.

“He’s week in, week out, playing very well, and last night he was top notch.

“His defensive side of the game is brilliant, he reads danger really well.

“He’s not the biggest, but it just shows you that you don’t really have to be.

“At international level there’s a lot of balls on the ground and it’s a lot on reading the game.

“And KT does that really well, and going forward you can tell he’s really eager to get forward.

“He gets beyond Andy (Robertson) at times and will be a real threat for us at the tournament.”

Tierney has been one of Arsenal’s best and most consistent players, giving fans something to smile about during a wretched season.

Mikel Arteta really missed him at various points in 2020-21 as he nursed a number of injuries.

Now fully fit, the Arsenal talent will hopefully give Scotland a Euro 2020 to remember and then return to help the Gunners back on track.
