Some Scotland fans give their verdict on Kieran Tierney’s display last night

Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney was in international action last night, the Gunners man playing the full 90 minutes as Scotland earned a 1-1 draw with Israel in the UEFA Nations League.

The 23-year-old, who was one of Mikel Arteta’s most in-form players after the resumption of English football, was back in the Scotland fold after a 13-game absence.

While Tierney is a left-back by trade, he has shown his versatility in recent months, and as such, he took a more central role while Andrew Robertson was pushed further up the left flank.

The 23-year-old put in a solid display for his nation both defensively and offensively, often finding himself covering for Robertson, who got caught out on a number of occasions.

Here is what some Scotland fans made of his performance:

 

Scotland took the lead late in the first half through a Ryan Christie penalty, but Eran Zahavi’s goal after 73 minutes meant Clarke’s side had to settle for a point.

The result leaves Scotland sitting third in Group 2 of League B, with the Czech Republic leading the way on three points.

Scotland were supposed to take on the Czechs on Monday but the game has been called off.
